Primary Care Track in General Internal Medicine
The primary care track is the preferred training for development of in-depth skills in the diagnosis and medical management of the ambulatory patient with associated skills in the routine continuity management of the hospitalized patient. It is recommended that the primary care track not be utilized as a pathway to a subspecialty. The hallmark of the primary care track is progressively increasing exposure to continuity ambulatory care, throughout the three year program. The resident will spend approximately two half-days per week in an ambulatory setting. This exposure allows residents to progressively increase the number of patients in their case loads and allows the patients to recognize the residents as their primary physician.
Traditional Track in General Internal Medicine
The traditional track is the preferred training for development of hospital based (hospitalist) skills or progression towards a subspecialty pathway. Residents in the Traditional Track will spend approximately one half-day per week in an ambulatory clinical setting with the remaining time focused on in-patient care. Structured educational programs will also be offered in the following areas: utilization review/quality management; mortality and morbidity reporting; manage care aspects of the hospitalized patient; and infection control.
The goal of the hospital elective is to give physician house officers and medical students a detailed look at the unique competencies that are required by a physician whose primary professional focus is the general medical care of hospitalized patients. The activities include patient care, teaching, research and leadership related to hospital care.
