Ambulatory medicine is structured in two-week clinic blocks which occur every six weeks. Residents learn to manage common ambulatory problems under the supervision and guidance of faculty preceptors. After residents have matched into the Internal Medicine Traditional Medicine Program, they will be asked to submit their preferences for clinic site. They will be assigned a panel of patients to follow over their three years of training.
Inpatient didactics include morning report, medical grand rounds, noon conference, and journal club. Morning reports are Monday to Wednesday for residents and Fridays for interns at Yale and the VA. Grand Rounds is held on Thursday morning. Outpatient didactics include outpatient report, case discussions from the Yale Office-Based Medicine Curriculum and educational half-days.
