Primary Care Rotations

ResidentsPrimary care residents rotate through all three hospitals on general medical and subspecialty inpatient wards, consults, and outpatient services. Primary care residents are given priority on the General Medicine Consult Service, which also provides co-management for surgical and non-medical services. On all inpatient services, faculty, residents and medical students work as a team in supervisory, educational, and patient care roles. Teaching services are capped to prevent overburdening interns with service responsibilities. Residents participate in two months of block rotations in their first year and three months of block rotations in their second and third years. Blocks include an extra day at continuity clinic and outpatient sessions in specific subspecialty clinics such as geriatrics, women's health, sports medicine, preventive cardiology with exercise stress testing, preventive cardiology, flexible sigmoidoscopy, gynecology, rheumatology, student health, dermatology, outpatient ID and HIV, hematology, endocrinology, headache management, nephrology, palliative care, or radiology. Subspecialty consults, rotations outside of internal medicine, community service, rotations in rural or urban ambulatory care, and clinical or laboratory research opportunities are also available.
