A-TRAIN (Ambulatory TRAINing)

Most of your first year in our program will be inpatient-based, and we want you to focus on this work.

However, it would be very difficult to jump into the Ambulatory Long Block in the second year without exposure to the ambulatory practice.

During the The (Ambulatory TRAINing) experience you will spend two hours per week in the ambulatory center learning the skills needed to join a high functioning ambulatory micro-system. This experience consists of three parts:

1. LEARNING - For the first three months you will work directly with expert faculty members and residents in the ambulatory center learning how to use the ambulatory electronic medical record and how to work through ambulatory visits.

2. SERVING - For the next nine months you will join your PGY-1 peers in managing a walk-in clinic within the ambulatory center. Each person you see will already have an established primary care resident or faculty member in the practice, and you will serve these patients as if they were attending an urgent care center. 

3. CARING -  You may  encounter patients on your inpatient services that do not already have a primary care physician. If you choose to assume this role for them, they will be assigned to your Long Block partner resident and you will co-manage them until you join the Long Block. We call this the Column of Care -- each resident in the Long Block hands their entire patient panel to the resident who follows the next year.

Long Block is all about developing continuous healing relationships that matter. A-TRAIN is to get you ready to do this.
