The Internal Medicine Residency Program at Massachusetts General Hospital offers a wide range of electives, centered on the interests of our residents.
The focus of the Internal Medicine Residency Program is on making sure that residents can maximize their elective time to meet their personal educational and professional goals. Residents can use elective time to explore career interests, develop greater skill in a particular clinical area, connect with mentors, or advance their work in research, medical education, advocacy or community health.
"Each role within residency at Mass General teaches me new ways in which to shape and direct the care of our patients. Through these experiences, I am provided with the skills and opportunities to become a focused team leader, ready to guide care within our hospital and in my future career.”
- Julia Maheshwari, MD Categorical resident

If a particular interest is not represented by the elective offerings, residents have the option of a self-design elective block.
