Outpatient Experience

Outpatient Experience

We recognize the importance of excellent training in the outpatient setting.

Front of HCOCOur program uses a "hybrid" system of half-day continuity clinics and month-long educational experiences in ambulatory medicine, which offers a unique balance of providing continuity of care to patients while minimizing scheduling conflicts with inpatient rotations.

Elements of the program include:

AIM Clinic – the residents' very own medical practice!

  • Attend clinic one half-day weekly to facilitate longitudinal care of patients
  • NO clinics are scheduled when your schedule is at its busiest (ICU, cardiology, night float, wards call day)
  • Additional clinics are scheduled when you are on ambulatory rotations so you have plenty of appointment times for your own patients
  • Quality improvement curriculum to improve care for your patient panel
  • High-yield pre-clinic conference
  • Interprofessional environment with pharmacists and social workers embedded in clinic
  • A focus on preventive care, including an in-office retinal eye camera for diabetic eye exams
  • Resident advisory committee collaborates with clinic administration

 

VA Ambulatory Rotations ("PRIME rotation")

  • Rotate through diverse subspecialty outpatient experiences, including medical and surgical subspecialties, for several interspersed months during your residency

 

Outpatient Private Practice Rotation

  • Work for a month with a private practice internist in Louisville or in an underserved area of Kentucky
