Primary Care Program
Challenging, But So Rewarding
A "continuous healing relationship with their patients"
is one reason Primary Care residents here at Baystate
are passionate about their chosen work.
They talk about why they choose primary care
in Healthcare News.
Our innovative, award-winning 3-year Primary Care program trains residents through a careful balance of supervision and autonomy to become leaders in primary care—providing effective, efficient, equitable, and patient-centered care to adult populations in any setting.
The Primary Care program runs concurrently with the Categorical program. As a primary care resident, you'll do much more than spend increased ambulatory time in the residency clinic. You will maximize your ambulatory learning through individualized continuity subspecialty electives, second primary care sites, community projects and quarterly mentorship dinners.
These subspecialty experiences are contained within each ambulatory rotation with electives running longitudinally through the year. Formative experiences on the hospital wards, critical care units, and emergency department also help you develop the diverse skills needed to be an accomplished internist.
