“During the Family Medicine inpatient rotation, we care for our patients in the hospital with our core faculty as attendings. We get to manage a wide variety of pathology, with plenty of backup, and the number of patients is regulated so we have time to learn the ropes. Morning report is aimed at practical patient care topics, and focuses on issues relevant to the patients we are treating. We have a strong emphasis on primary care, and we follow-up with our patients in clinic after they are discharged.”
