Curriculum and Rotations

We believe in a team approach to medical education and patient care, so our teams consist of one intern and one resident. Together they are responsible for an average of eight to twelve patients on the medical floors and four to six patients in the critical care units. A teaching attending oversees each team, serving as both a resource person and a role model. The teaching attending conducts didactic and bedside rounds daily and is available for consultation at any time.

Residents are encouraged and expected to learn to perform proficiently those procedural skills recommended by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Likewise, residents are expected to attend all scheduled conferences, clinics and educational rounds in a timely fashion. All categorical residents are required to prepare a research project or case report at the completion of the third year. Mountainside residents have been invited to present their research projects at the state and national meetings of the American College of Physicians and have published case reports in “Resident and Staff Physician.”

Conferences and Committees

The following conferences supplement and amplify your clinical ward teaching. Medical grand rounds are also held two to three times a month.

  • Monthly Clinical Pathology, Chief of Service Conferences, Journal Club meetings, and Performance Improvement Conference.
  • Daily noontime conferences in the subspecialties and specialties of medicine.
  • Conferences on topics of common interests held in conjunction with the Family Practice Residency such as law and medical ethics, practice management, and occupational and preventive medicine.

In addition, junior and senior residents actively participate in a number of medical staff and hospital-wide committees including:

  • Performance Improvement
  • Critical Care
  • Emergency Medicine
  • Clinical Resource Management
  • Medical Records
  • Library
  • Medical Education
  • Pharmacy and Therapeutics

And, two residents elected by their peers also sit on the Resident Council of the Graduate Medical Education Committee.

The Visiting Professor Program

Twice a year, outstanding academicians from various medical schools spend a day providing intimate didactic instruction in their specialty.

The Outpatient Clinics

Throughout the three years of residency, one half day per week is spent seeing a panel of patients in the outpatient clinic.
