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.

The 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.

Continuity Clinic

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.
