Ambulatory Care Residency Special Features: Boston Medical Center’s PGY2 Ambulatory Care Residency is designed to prepare the resident to be a skilled practitioner that is able to work as part of a multi-disciplinary healthcare team. The resident will have a longitudinal exposure to primary care, within our Family Medicine or General Internal Medicine clinics, and anticoagulation. Additional opportunities are available for exposure to specialty clinics (i.e. Cardiology, Center for Infectious Disease, Endocrinology, Renal Transplant, Center for Digestive Disorders, Nephrology, Rheumatology, Geriatrics, Pulmonology, Dermatology and Hematology/Oncology). The resident will refine skills to manage complex chronic medical conditions as the population Boston Medical Center provides care for is one that is underserved. Residents participate in managing the anticoagulation pager every 3rd weekend. Longitudinal projects focus on quality improvement based on the Institute for Healthcare Improvement model.
