- Developing the skills and expertise necessary for the practice of outpatient medicine is an essential component of residency training in both internal medicine and pediatrics. There is also growing recognition that essential aspects of office practice, such as doctor-patient-family communication, evidence-based decision-making, preventive medicine, and office-based procedures, should be taught to residents in training. An extensive ambulatory curriculum has been developed to meet these needs, and is learned in a variety of venues and rotations.
