Educational Innovations

In 2006 we were one of 21 programs selected for the ACGME's Educational Innovations Project.

More than 15 years of effort has made us one of the most innovative residencies in the country, and leaders in medical education.

Through our creative work, members of our team have been recognized with the International Residency Educator of the Year Award, the Association of Program Directors Distinguished Medical Educator Award, the  A.B. Dolly Cohen Award for Teaching Excellence, the American College of Physician's Master Teacher Award, the ACGME's Parker Palmer Courage to Teach Award the Society of Hospital Medicine's Award for Excellence in Teaching, and a Macy Faculty Scholar award.

The list below showcases some of our most recent work.
