The continuity clinic experience incorporates a diverse group of patients that each resident follows throughout residency. The 3+1 ambulatory block schedule is structured so that residents spend 13, one-week blocks per year in clinic. During each ambulatory week, a resident attends 4-6 half day sessions seeing his or her patients. The rest of the week is structured into reverse classroom sessions led by residents and attended by faculty, which focus on various topics in ambulatory medicine and quality improvement.
Subspecialty rotations are interspersed between inpatient medicine months and are designed to further each resident's clinical competency as applied to each subspecialty. During these blocks, residents have no on-call or weekend responsibilities. Subspecialty rotations required include: Cardiology, Critical Care, Infectious Diseases, Emergency Medicine, Endocrinology, Hematology, Oncology, Nephrology, Neurology, Geriatrics, Gastroenterology, Pulmonary, Rheumatology, Dermatology, and Ambulatory Medicine.
