Long Block - Advanced Ambulatory Practice Conference Series

We believe that Internal Medicine is more than the patient you care for in the hospital.  You are also a primary care physician to a group of patients; who look to you for guidance in their daily health. The weekly Advanced Ambulatory Practice (AAP) sessions will provide you with the necessary skills to take care of your patients.  The goal of AAP is for you to actively learn about common outpatient conditions so as to provide evidence-based, specialized care, to  your patients. This curriculum has been specifically designed by residents. For example, one in three of the patients you see in clinic have a diagnosis of diabetes, so we begin the curriculum with two dedicated sessions on diabetes management.

In keeping with our residency philosophy, we will guide, challenge and support you as you learn the skills to be a successful internist. Each session will be different. One day you may titrate insulin or start oral diabetic medications as you review cases, and the next you will be presented with common outpatient complaints based on physical exam findings. You will discuss in small groups the diagnosis and appropriate management of these conditions. Our goal is to enable you to be an adult learner, to continually learn new skills and challenge you through literature reviews and evidence-based medicine guidelines.  Below are some of the topics that you may see during your Advanced Ambulatory Practice sessions:

  • Diabetes Management
  • Thyroid Disorders
  • Rheumatology for the Internist
  • Gout
  • Sports Medicine for the Internist
  • Common Outpatient Infection
