Osteopathic Residency Program

The great success of the Traditional Rotating Osteopathic Internship here at the University of Connecticut has resulted in the creation of our Osteopathic Residency Program. This is a three-year program that satisfies all of the AOA and ACGME requirements for both internships and residencies. The Osteopathic Residency Program is fully integrated into the Internal Medicine Residency Program. We offer three positions each year for this dually-accredited program.

The internship year of this three-year program is designed to provide housestaff with a full spectrum of clinical experience and patient care responsibilities, while still meeting all the requirements of the Traditional Rotating Osteopathic Internship. The curriculum of this first year provides an outstanding educational experience and foundation in Internal Medicine, Women's Health, Ambulatory Surgery, and Emergency Medicine. Rotations in Neurology, Pulmonary Medicine, OMM round out the year. Second and third year residents in the Osteopathic Residency Program will build on the strong foundation of the internship year with rotations in General Medicine, Critical Care, and a wide array of Medicine and non-Medicine electives. In addition to the core curriculum, all residents in the Osteopathic Residency Program will maintain one primary care continuity clinic. The program offers an educational stipend that allows each resident to attend the annual ACOI conference during their third year of training.

  • Residents in the Osteopathic Residency Program may apply to both Osteopathic and Allopathic Fellowships Programs.
  • Graduates of this three-year Residency Program will be board-eligible for both the AOBIM and ABIM Internal Medicine Boards.
  • All applications must be made through ERAS. Please note that ERAS currently refers to this three-year program as a "Tracking Internship linked with an Osteopathic Internal Medicine Residency Program". In the future, ERAS will refer to it as Option 1.

The ERAS program number is: 163798
