First Year

As a first year resident, you spend six four-week blocks on inpatient general medicine services where you are the primary physician. You are responsible for admission history and physical examinations, discharge summaries, daily progress notes, and following patients in intensive care, telemetry, and ward environments. You are expected to make the initial assessment, integrate this with initial laboratory data and outline a plan of action, write orders, confer with the supervising resident and maintain primary responsibility throughout the patient's hospital stay.

You spend one four-week block of general medicine in the ambulatory arena where you are exposed to other aspects of adult care, including dermatology, ENT, and gynecology.

An additional four-week block is spent in the coronary intensive care unit. These rotations are closely supervised by senior residents and experienced subspecialists in the respective areas.
