Continuity Practice at the North Hudson Community Action Corporation at Englewood
Our residents receive their outpatient training at the NHCAC at Englewood during their 2-week ambulatory blocks. This clinic is both a Federally Qualified Health Center and a Patient Centered 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 4:1. Other services in our clinic include OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Podiatry and Dental.
Residents generally attend a total of four continuity clinic sessions and two sub-specialty office sessions per week. One half-day each week is protected for an academic session that includes case-based discussions using the Yale Office Based Medicine Curriculum and Johns Hopkins Ambulatory Modules as well as evidence-based medicine conferences. There is dedicated time built into the schedule for mentorship to complete quality improvement projects, our POCUS curriculum and protected time for independent study and self-care.
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 Geriatric Medicine fellows 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.
