Early in the intern year, residents meet with the program directors and their faculty mentor to discuss career goals and plan their curriculum. Residents’ relationship with their faculty mentor is the foundation of our mentorship program.

Residents have 13 four-week rotations a year.

Outpatient Medicine

Residents provide the highest quality longitudinal and patient-centered ambulatory care for patients in the clinic and the community through the principles of chronic disease and population health management by caring for their own panel of patients with common and complex diseases across multiple care settings.

In addition to their continuity sessions, residents spend time providing outpatient care during their Ambulatory and Team Leader blocks. These are important block rotations that allow for other learning opportunities such as participation in the QI curriculum, home visits, population health management didactics and reading assignments. At Memorial Hospital, residents are assigned to one of two firms where they work under the guidance of a dedicated preceptor.
