  • You will spend a total of 30 months in Internal Medicine and 30 months with Psychiatry.
  • From your first year, you will have an integrated Med/Psych clinic.
  • Every week, you will have a half-day of immersion in the alternate department. (e.g. when you are on Medicine, you will have a half day at Psychiatry.) This creates a continual pattern of integrated learning throughout the five years.
