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.
We set the PGY-1 year up so you will rotate on a 4+2 basis (four weeks of inpatient services alternating with 2 weeks of elective time or vacation). This allows you to decompress after each intense inpatient elective.
You will develop progressive autonomy under the supervision of senior residents, fellows and attendings. You will also gain skills in teaching and evaluation.
A typical schedule for a PGY-1 resident includes:
|Experience – PGY-1||Rotations|
General Medical Wards/Hospitalist
Subspecialty Wards (nephrology,
Intensive Care Unit
