The Clinics

Training a well-rounded med-peds physician requires in-depth patient exposure in both the inpatient and outpatient settings.  Our continuity clinic experience pairs a resident with a clinical preceptor from the first month of training.  This primary care experience offers residents an in-depth experience:  well child care, adult preventative care, and diagnosis/treatment/long-term management of diagnosis of common and complex medical problems.  Our continuity clinic preceptors supplement evidence-based practice with over 225 years of combined post-graduate patient care experience.  Each resident spends at least one half day a week in their continuity clinic.  Most residents choose to participate in a combined med-peds continuity clinic, but opportunities are available for those residents who choose separate internal medicine and pediatrics clinics as well.  Program leadership also work with individual residents to offer additional opportunities to spend time in the continuity clinic (Outpatient Med-Peds rotation, two weekly clinics for residents planning careers in primary care, etc.)

The resident-run Continuity Clinic Committee enhances the continuity clinic experience by overseeing the educational curriculum and utilizing resident feedback in realtime to make improvements to our outpatient experience.  Duties of the Committee include scheduling and facilitating the Friday Med-Peds Primary Care Conference, which includes a weekly rotation of resident-led/preceptor-mentored interactive primary care lectures as well as sponsoring guest experts who come in from outside the program to teach our residents about specific aspects of primary care.
