Internal Medicine Curriculum & Conferences
Our Internal Medicine Residency Program utilizes academic half day evidence
based delivery methods for core curriculum conference sessions. This model
ensures broad exposure to frequently tested topics on the ABIM examination.
This will also prepare our residents to become well rounded Internist
that practice high quality Internal Medicine and/or pursue academic careers.
The core curriculum lectures are designed to be PGY specific to allow our
residents to increase their knowledge base along the continuum of entry
level through their senior year of training. The lecture sessions include
didactics, discussions/case reports, workshops, and small group activities
led by attending physicians and residents, and will build on evidence-based
Internal Medicine curriculum, with emphasis on humanities and ethics in medicine.
The core curriculum specifics will build over 18 months in duration, which
will provide opportunities for each resident to be exposed to curriculum
sessions twice during their training over the course of 36 months of the
The Internal Medicine primary and continuity care practice provides residents
the opportunity to interact with experienced academic faculty who teaches/instructs
a high level of continuity care in a friendly and compassionate environment.
The Continuity Clinic satisfies all primary care, preventive and specialized
health care tailored to each individual patient.
In our Primary Care and Continuity Clinic residents provide longitudinal
continuity of care for their individual panel of patients under supervision
of experienced academic Internal Medicine faculty. Before each clinic
session, residents participate in an interactive pre-clinic conference
and evidence based session led by a core faculty member.
Each core faculty supervising residents keep a 3:1 resident to attending
faculty member ratio. In this setting residents have an opportunity to
achieve observable and measurable developmental milestones. Data is collected
utilizing several sources, including mini CEX, in-training exams (ITE),
360 degree evaluations and informal feedback. An electronic medical record
system, eClinicalWorks (ECW), integrates all patient medical information
allowing seamless documentation of all patient information.
