Primary Care Track

The Internal Medicine Residency Program offers a Primary Care Track to approximately seven residents a year. Our residents take part in a curriculum specifically designed to address the unique aspects of outpatient medicine and population health that are essential to our dramatically evolving healthcare system.

Program Overview

Residents are exposed to exciting aspects of the ambulatory healthcare delivery system, including the patient-centered medical home, telemedicine, skilled nursing facility care and outpatient palliative care. Residents are also introduced to multiple specialties that are typically not focused on in categorical internal medicine training, including ambulatory training in orthopaedics, neurology, geriatrics, women’s health and community-based care in FQHCs.

The Primary Care Track is integrated into a 4+1 residency structure that provides one-week blocks of continuity ambulatory clinics every fifth week throughout the three-year residency. These one-week experiences are supplemented by an additional 32 weeks of ambulatory clinical rotation, as well as didactic and quality-improvement curricula.

Residents choose between a community-based indigent patient clinic, a large multispecialty medical group or a clinic focused on LGBTQ+ medicine to serve as the home base for their primary care training. Additionally, all residents have the flexibility to train at many other ambulatory sites to experience different patient populations and different systems of practice. Residents in this track receive ongoing mentorship from experienced and skilled outpatient physicians at their home site.
