Rotation Details

Internal Medicine physicians are essential providers of comprehensive care for hospitalized patients. These inpatient-based rotations provide necessary, longitudinal exposure to common medical problems of hospitalized patients. All first, second and third-year residents will do rotations at North Oaks Medical Center.

Residents will learn to efficiently refine history and physical exam skills, form diagnostic plans and manage a wide variety of diseases and pathology. Additionally, residents will encounter uncommon medical conditions and directly interact with a variety of specialists from multiple disciplines to coordinate care for hospitalized patients with complex medical needs.

Inpatient Medicine Residents will attend a half-day didactic learning weekly session during which time the hospitalist attending of record will cover any calls or urgent issues that cannot wait until the didactic sessions are completed.

Residents attend their four-hour continuity clinic on their one pre-call day of the month when they have their continuity clinic. They will have no other ambulatory responsibilities during this month.

Note: The following schedule and structure is our intended operating model as the program advances. In our initial two years, given the absence of senior residents, the same approach will be used, but the teaching faculty will serve in place of the senior resident(s) and provide all supervision. As the Clinical Competency Committee approves residents for supervisory duties, they will be transitioned into that role while still receiving support and supervision from the faculty physicians.
