Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program



One unique benefit of being a primary care resident with us is that you will be part of a residents' union, which helps negotiate your benefits and salary.  As such, the best place to get information on benefits.  You will be paid by NYC Health + Hospitals, which partners with the union.  At the website below, you will see comprehensive benefit information, and can even peruse your contract.  


Committee of Interns & Residents (CIR)/Service Employees International Union (SEIU)
