Preliminary Year

Brigham and Women’s Hospital provides a rigorous and richly rewarding one-year experience for physicians headed to residencies in other fields; such as radiation-oncology; dermatology; ophthalmology; and radiology. BWH will offer 19 preliminary positions to start in July 2021. The selection criteria for entry into the program and our commitment to your career development is exactly the same as for residents in our other programs.  Our philosophy is to make all programs equal and treat every trainee with the same level of trust and respect, and thus the programs are completely and seamlessly integrated into the full intern experience and curriculum; with three differences:

  1. No continuity clinic;
  2. Five 2-week blocks of elective (categorical residents do electives starting in the junior year);
  3. Rotating at the VA Hospital is optional.

In addition to standard preliminary positions; we participate in partnerships for BWH PGY 1 years in Advanced-Preliminary Neurology ProgramMedicine-Anesthesia; and Harvard Longwood Psychiatry Program.
