THE CONTINUITY CLINIC

Dot Line

The primary care continuity experience is central to internal medicine training. A resident begins their continuity clinic in the fall of the first year. Each clinic functions as a "mini" group practice, consisting of a teaching attending and three or four residents. Clinic teams stay together for three years. Pre-clinic conference time is used for topic discussion and QA projects. Over one-third of the residents have chosen to have their continuity clinic in private office practices and clinics with specialized populations. Residents may elect a second continuity clinic in a subspecialty of choice during the second and third year.
