Ambulatory Clinics

The GIM residents participate in a longitudinal GIM Fellows' Clinic where they act as MRP (most responsible physician) for their patient cohort, and the faculty rotate through.  Referrals are all urgent referrals from the community or ER, so are generally more interesting than a standard general internal medicine clinic.  The GIM Fellows' Clinic is also a venue for the residents to follow up patients they have seen in the emergency department, discharged from hospital or have seen on the GIM consultation service.  In this way, over two years the residents develop important skills in ambulatory care, managing the clinic, their patient cohort, and the challenge of advocating and managing resources for their patients in an ambulatory setting.
