Curriculum & Conferences
MountainView Hospital is known as a Center of Excellence in Primary Care
Practice and Education. Our Internal Medicine Residency Program utilizes
academic half day evidence based delivery methods for core curriculum
conference sessions. This model ensures broad exposure to frequently tested topics on the
ABIM examination. This will also prepare our residents to become well
rounded Internist that practice high quality Internal Medicine and/or
pursue academic careers.
The core curriculum lectures are designed to be PGY specific to allow our
residents to increase their knowledge base along the continuum of entry
level through their senior year of training. The
lecture sessions include didactics, discussions/case reports, workshops, and small group
activities led by attending physicians and residents, and will build on
evidence-based Internal Medicine curriculum, with emphasis on humanities
and ethics in medicine.
core curriculum specifics will build over 18 months in duration, which will provide opportunities
for each resident to be exposed to
curriculum sessions twice during their training over the course of 36 months of the residency program.
The Internal Medicine primary and continuity care practice provides residents
the opportunity to interact with experienced academic faculty who teaches/instructs
a high level of continuity care in a friendly and compassionate environment.
The Continuity Clinic satisfies all primary care, preventive and specialized
health care tailored to each individual patient.
In our Primary Care and
Continuity Clinic residents provide longitudinal continuity of care for their individual
panel of patients under supervision of experienced academic Internal Medicine
faculty. Before each clinic session, residents participate in an interactive
pre-clinic conference and evidence based session led by a core faculty member.
Each core faculty supervising residents keep a 3:1 resident to attending
faculty member ratio. In this setting residents have an opportunity to
achieve observable and measurable developmental milestones. Data is collected
utilizing several sources, including mini CEX, in-training exams (ITE),
360 degree evaluations and informal feedback. An electronic medical record
system, eClinicalWorks (ECW), integrates all patient medical information
allowing seamless documentation of all patient information.
