Primary Care Track
The primary care track is intended for those people that want to pursue ambulatory medicine. The ambulatory component of your residency is achieved through a clinic setting, which enables residents to develop their own panel of patients. The clinic is equipped with EMR and the residents are granted greater autonomy throughout the clinical experience.
The hospitalist track places special emphasis on inpatient medicine and prepares residents for careers as hospitalist physicians or for planned fellowships. You will learn from experienced surgeons and gain exposure to general, thoracic and gynecological surgeries and GI procedures. IM Residency is in compliance with the standards of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.
Your involvement in direct patient care will enable your proficiency with arterial line placement, triple lumen catheters, and PICC line placement and your training will include endotracheal intubation, thoracentesis, paracentesis, ventilator management, and EKG interpretation.
