PRIMARY CARE (AMBULATORY OFFICE)
The ambulatory rotation will provide a structured office setting experience in the management of out-patients in the field of Internal Medicine. It will provide residents with the appropriate tools to accurately assess and initiate appropriate diagnostic and therapeutic maneuvers. This curriculum will also develop the skills necessary for residents to interact with others in the health care (i.e. attending physicians, nursing staff, therapists, family members, and patients). Furthermore, the ambulatory curriculum will improve and build their foundation to become competent, compassionate, well-rounded physicians, and develop their communication skills, understand doctor-patient relationship in areas of behavior, diversity, socioeconomic status, and educational backgrounds. During the ambulatory rotations, residents will build their medical knowledge through the exposure to different pathologies and incorporation of skills and techniques that will prepare them for management of patients in an ambulatory setting.
During the Ambulatory Internal Medicine Months PGY 1, PGY 2 and PGY 3 residents will usually work independently under the supervision of the Attending. However, in certain settings like the Ambulatory Offices the PGY 3 and PGY 2 Resident will assist in coaching and training the PGY 1 residents.ScheduleGoals & Objectives
