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, and the team attending faculty will act as the academic and career advisor for each of these residents. Pre-clinic conference time is used for topic discussion and QA projects. Over one-third of the residents have their continuity clinic in private office practices and clinics with specialized populations. Residents may elect a second continuity clinic in primary care or a subspecialty of choice during the second and third year.
