Private Practice Experience

The Resident's Practice simulates a private practice experience for all categorical interns and residents. It is supervised by a faculty of academic General Internists, housed in a new, modern on-site facility which is adequately staffed and supplied. Patients are seen by interns and residents during the +1 week every 5 weeks and followed longitudinally throughout the three-year training program. Residents share night and weekend coverage of the practice. Lectures on outpatient medical topics are given by the faculty at the beginning of each clinic session.

Community-based Experience

As part of the new 4+1 schedule, interns and residents also will visit a "second site" for 2 half days of their outpatient week which occurs every 5 weeks. There they will work closely with an Internal Medicine attending at a private office. Again, patients will be followed longitudinally by housestaff in that private clinic throughout the training program.
