Residency Pathways

Our program offers 5 unique pathways or ‘tracks’ residents can pursue. These allow our residents to tailor their residency experience to their interests, aspirations, and grow in ways that set them apart.


During their time at UCSD, our residents have the opportunity to fine-tune their experience based on specific interests. We’ve had substantial interest in five career paths, so our program created “Pathways” or “Tracks” to give structure and protected time devoted to our residents with these interests. Joining a track is not a requirement of residency, and most residents still choose to shape their educational experience here in their own individual way. However, for those who do share these common interests, these amazing pathways are just another part of what makes UCSD’s Internal Medicine Residency truly unique.
