ROTATIONS


d

 

Inpatient medical teams include a PGY-2 or 3 level resident working with one or two PGY-1 residents and a dedicated internal medicine faculty member. Medical students on core internal medicine rotations or UCSF students on 4th year clerkships are often part of the medical team.


Ambulatory experience includes half day "block" clinic rotations in all three years of training as well as continuity clinics, which extend throughout the entire residency. Each resident has two continuity clinics per week when on an outpatient rotation, and one per week during inpatient rotations. One clinic is at the VA hospital, the other at the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC).


Subspecialty elective rotations are available and provide greater in-depth knowledge and experience. Resident responsibilities include both inpatient consultations and outpatient clinics. By the completion of the three-year program, residents will have completed rotations in most of the subspecialty fields: cardiology, dermatology, endocrinology, gastroenterology, hematology/oncology, infectious diseases, nephrology, neurology, rheumatology and pulmonary medicine. .


Selected residents are also provided the opportunity to do one elective as a PG2 and/or PG3 at UCSF. The residency program provides housing and parking for the residents while at UCSF.
