Curriculum

The Combined Internal Medicine + Pediatric Residency is a four year program designed to prepare the resident for certification by both the American Board of Pediatrics and the American Board of Internal Medicine.

There are six resident positions for each of the four years. 

Our Medicine Schedule for most rotations is 3+1 (3 weeks of rotation and 1 week of ambulatory). Our Pediatric schedule is broken into 4 week rotations. Our residents rotate between these two schedules every four weeks for all four years of training. The feedback from this format of switching every month on average and for the integration of the 3+1 schedule has been very positive.


 DUTY HOURS

  1. Residents must not be scheduled for more than 80 hours of duty per week, averaged over a four-week period.

  2. Residents must be provided one day in seven free from all patient care responsibilities, averaged over a four-week period.

  3. Call must be no more frequently than every third night averaged over a four-week period.

  4. There must be a 24-hour limit on on-call duty, with an added period of up to 6 hours for continuity and transfer of care, educational debriefing and didactic activities; no new patients may be assigned after 24 hours.

  5. An 8-hour minimum rest period should be provided between duty periods.

  6. When residents take call from home and are called into the hospital, the time spent in the hospital will be counted toward the weekly hour limit.
