Continuity Clinics

You will see patients once per week or several sessions per week during ambulatory block time at an assigned med-peds continuity clinic, where you will manage your own patients, supervised by faculty, throughout your training.

All clinics are supervised by dually-certified med-peds faculty and you will see both adult and pediatric patients.

You will retain the same clinic for the full four years of your training, which will enable you to develop your own panel of patients.

All of our med-peds clinics have achieved accreditation from the National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA).

You will be matched to one of three distinct sites based on the clinic’s needs and your skills:
