PGY2 and -3 residents alternate call months in hospital medicine or the intensive care setting with non-call months of elective time and continuity clinic. This allows for immersion and deeper learning in all aspects of the Internal Medicine discipline. While on the wards or ICU, instruction is focused on intensive care, hospital medicine and consultative medicine. The remaining six months are reserved for elective time in one of the sub-specialties; or the selectives — such as geriatrics, neurology or block ambulatory medicine rotation. Embedded within the months of these non-call experiences are two half-day sessions per week of continuity clinic.
