Educational Experience

We take pride in our resident-driven curriculum that allows for excellent board preparation, a monthly journal club allowing for a brief review of the latest research in medicine and pediatrics, and a Med-Peds curriculum conference held each month.  As a result, our program consistently yields exceptionally well-prepared and competent Med-Peds physicians.

Features of our curriculum include:

    • Monthly journal club at various residents' and faculty members' homes
    • Monthly Med-Peds curriculum conference reviewing monthly topic reading and board preparation questions
    • Ambulatory Yale curriculum reviewing common medicine and pediatric primary care topics
    • Dedicated pediatric and medicine didactics while on each service
    • Numerous online resources, such as MKSAP and pediatric PREP, available to each resident

Continuity Clinic

During the first two years of training, each resident will have one half-day of continuity clinic where they will establish a panel of adult and pediatric patients.  Continuity clinics are held at Woodrail Internal - Medicine Pediatrics Clinic, a university affilitated primary care clinic, as well as the Family Health Center, a federally-funded health clinic.

During the third and fourth years of training, residents add a second half-day clinic during elective / non-inpatient rotations.  The second clinic may be at the same location as the primary continuity clinic, or residents may choose to work with adult or pediatric specialists to further explore an area of interest or to gain more exposure to an area of weakness.
