Outpatient Yale Clinics
The home of the Department of Neurology's outpatient clinic is at the garden level of the Yale Physician's Building at 800 Howard Avenue. Residents spend half a day there each week seeing patients in follow-up after discharge from the hospital or new referrals. To ensure continuity, a system is in place so that residents who take care of a patient in the hospital also see that patient in their own clinic. Residents book their patients in either a dedicated stroke continuity clinic on Monday afternoons or a general neurology clinic on Tuesday aftenoons. There is also a Neurology Urgent Access Clinic (NUAC) on Thursday afternoons for new patients needing urgent evaluations referred by primary care physicians or the Emergency Room. Patients seen in the NUAC clinic are then followed by the resident in his or her Monday or Tuesday afternoon continuity clinic, The clinic is equipped with an electronic record system, and all clinic notes are entered electronically. Both inpatient and outpatient imaging are available for review through an electronic database.
