As the ambulatory chief resident for the department of medicine, I coordinate the outpatient clinic schedules for our residents. We have 3 continuity clinic sites. Each site affords a unique and rich continuity clinic experience. A common concern amongst residents is the inherent conflict between inpatient and outpatient duties while on inpatient services. To address this, we have developed a unique hybrid system here at UF. Our residents have decompressed clinic schedules while on inpatient services. Residents then have both AM and PM continuity clinics while on elective and ambulatory rotations. This model maintains patient continuity and ensures patients have access to their providers. I encourage you to come see our program and what Gainesville has to offer.
