Typical Rotations

Unity Hospital's Internal Medicine Residency Program has a 4+1 block schedule. This means that residents have a 4 week rotation (e.g. floors, ICU, elective, etc.) followed by 1 week in the ambulatory clinic. This pattern repeats itself throughout the three years of residency. This enhances both the inpatient and outpatient experiences. During required inpatient or elective rotations, residents do not go to the ambulatory clinic, focusing instead on the current learning experience. Conversely, when in the ambulatory clinic, residents do not need to worry about inpatient responsibilities. This change to the 4+1 block schedule began in the 2012-13 academic year and has been positively received by both residents and faculty. Preliminary residents, who do not go to clinic, have increased elective time to enhance their preparation for their future career.
