Educational Innovation Sets us Above
Patient care and education are inextricably linked. Our internal medicine residency programs maximize the quality of both.
Our Learner-Manager-Teacher model balances supervision and autonomy at every stage of learning. As you gain competence, you progress through the roles of Learner, Manager and Teacher, gaining more independence at each stage.
A month-long orientation lays foundational skills you need to be successful. You’ll spend 2 weeks fully immersed in patient care on the wards, followed by experiences in the clinic and the critical care units. Our boot camp teaches you how to care for acutely ill patients using simulation scenarios.
In late June our “Fly Up” block gets you ready to take on the responsibilities of your new role as Manager or Teacher before the new interns arrive.
Our Culture Sets Us Apart
We take exceptional care of our patients, our program, and each other.
It's an honor and privilege to care for our patients. Likewise, we consider it a privilege to train our residents.
