Cincinnati’s Med-Peds residency program had a strong tradition of training graduates to succeed in careers related to primary care, hospital medicine, and many subspecialties. In 2017, in response to our residents’ requests for more personalized
training experiences, education, and mentorship tailored to their future careers, we launched two new residency track experiences, the Acute Care Track and the Primary Care Track. These track experiences are optional, and residents elect to participate
towards the end of their 2nd year. Members of the tracks are still required to meet all the ACGME program requirements for training in Med-Peds,
but have the opportunity to participate in additional experiences tailored to their future career. Both tracks offer specialized, quarterly educational dinners that all residents (whether part of the track or not!) are able to attend. Some examples
of past quarterly dinners include how to find a job as a hospitalist, wound care for the primary care physician, basics of bedside ultrasound, basics of palliative care in the inpatient setting, and joint injections in the outpatient setting.
Recent surveys have shown that roughly one quarter of Med-Peds residency graduates pursue careers in Hospital Medicine or acute care related subspecialties (e.g critical
care, infectious disease, cardiology, etc.). The skills that are needed for a physician to adequately meet the needs of hospitalized patients and serve the health care system are constantly changing. The goal of the Acute Care Track is to meet the
evolving needs of those who wish to pursue careers caring for hospitalized patients.
Goals of the track include:
We are thrilled to offer a primary care track as part of our Med-Peds resident experience. Any resident, regardless of intent to enter primary care as a career is welcome
to participate! We have 6 clinic-based faculty involved in the track, and residents also have access to our numerous area wide Med-Peds trained physicians in the community. The goal of the Primary Care Track is to deepen and expand residents’
skills for primary care practice.
