During the past few years, the internal medicine community has engaged in a serious discussion about the need to redesign internal medicine residency training to ensure that residents are prepared to provide high-quality care to the patients whom they are likely to encounter when they enter practice. In 2005, persons within the internal medicine community published several articles (1–3) noting the need to reform certain aspects of internal medicine training. That same year, the Society of General Internal Medicine issued a report (4) calling for the redesign of residency training. In 2006, the American College of Physicians (ACP) (5) and the Association of Program Directors in Internal Medicine (6) acknowledged that redesign of internal medicine residency training was urgently needed and offered recommendations for the kinds of changes that should be adopted.
