Ambulatory Experience

Our unique 4 + 2 schedule offers 4 weeks of rotation (Inpatient floors, ICU or Elective) followed by 2 weeks of dedicated ambulatory time. This schedule:
  • Allows for a more rewarding and uninterrupted outpatient as well as inpatient experience
  • Allows the residents to experience a “Group Practice” model as they work in cohorts providing coverage for each other’s continuity clinic patients when their PCP is not in clinic
  • Allows for ample continuity with residents’ patient panel
