Clinical Triennium - PGY 1

As a PGY-1 resident, you will rotate through inpatient services and participate in the A-TRAIN program.

Inpatient Experience

In the first year of residency you will learn acute inpatient and consultative medicine. You will experience patient-centered general medicine teams, subspecialty teams (cardiology, nephrology, gastroenterology and hematology/oncology), and intensive care units.You will develop progressive autonomy under the supervision of senior residents, fellows and attendings. You will also gain skills in teaching and evaluation.

General medical teams have no more than 12 patients per team, and subspecialty teams generally have 12-14 patients. University Hospital uses the EPIC electronic medical record and the VAMC uses CPRS.
