Residents & Fellows

The UConn School of Medicine (UCSOM) and its affiliated hospitals provide the educational and clinical resources for residency and fellowship training at the Graduate Medical Education (GME) level. The UCSOM sponsors a wide array of GME programs including 55 accredited residency and fellowships, and hosts approximately 650 residents and fellows with more than 500 full-time university-based and 260 full-time affiliated hospital-based faculty and over 800 part-time and volunteer faculty supporting the educational mission. Residents and fellows practice in our academic medical center, affiliated teaching hospitals, local academic and community practices, and community health centers. This network includes training in clinical research and comprehensive primary and specialty care. Our hospitals draw from a diverse patient population base of over one million from central and northern Connecticut. Residency and Fellowship allows doctors to provide advanced medical care and to be part of a system where they supported as both learner and teacher; our residents and fellows participate in the clinical education of UConn medical and dental students. As a teaching institution dedicated to education, research, and patient care, UCSOM has received the highest accreditation from our accrediting organization, the ACGME.
