Internal Medicine & Anesthesiology

The American Board of Internal Medicine (ABIM) and the ABA began a combined training program in internal medicine and anesthesiology in 2012. This program requires five, rather than six, years of training and allows physicians to be fully qualified and certified in both specialties.

Every program that wishes to offer this combined training must be ACGME-accredited and in good standing with their respective residency review committees. Applications must be approved by both the ABIM and the ABA before residents are recruited. Individuals who wish to apply to any approved program should contact the program directly.
