Continuity Practice at the NHCAC Englewood Health Center
During the two-week ambulatory block, our residents receive ambulatory training at the North Hudson Community Action Corporation – Englewood Health Center. This facility is Joint Commission-certified as a Primary Care Medical Home where our residents are able to develop a continuity practice in a supportive environment. The onsite faculty preceptors are always available, with a resident faculty ratio of 3:1.
Residents attend a total of four continuity clinic sessions and two subspecialty office sessions per week. One half-day each week is protected for an academic session that includes our vibrant evidence-based medicine and case discussions. There is dedicated time built into the schedule for mentorship to complete quality improvement projects and protected time for independent study and self-care.
Subspecialty Ambulatory Selective
PGY1 residents spend a total of 4 weeks in Rheumatology and Endocrinology outpatient rotations. These rotations provide additional experience and exposure to outpatient subspecialty practice early in training.
PGY3 residents receive formal training in geriatric medicine and are equipped with the skills needed to provide high quality acute, chronic, and preventive care to older adults. During this required rotation, residents work alongside board-certified Geriatricians and are exposed to a wide variety of practice settings for Geriatric Medicine ranging from office-based practice to acute care and long term care settings.
