For those interested in outpatient general medicine and a primary care career, we encourage you to apply for our Primary Care Track within our Internal Medicine Residency program. This dedicated Primary Care Track provides intensive, engaging, and innovative opportunities for clinical training in ambulatory general medicine.
Our Primary Care Track is a relatively new track within the UF Internal Medicine Residency program. It started in July 2014 after continual interest and great demand for primary care training from our housestaff and our ambulatory general medicine faculty. The curriculum is comprised of various clinical rotations which include expanded continuity clinic experiences, longitudinal outpatient specialty rotations, and dedicated ambulatory conferences. Clinical rotations are carefully selected and mutually agreed upon by the Primary Care residents so as to contribute to the well-rounded education of future generalists. Its structure is based on UF’s version of the “4+4” block schedule which alternates one month of inpatient rotation with one month of ambulatory block rotation during the PGY2 and PGY3 years.
The mission of the UF Medicine Residency Primary Care Track is to provide a well-rounded education in internal medicine and train residents to become proficient generalists, lifelong learners, and future leaders in clinical practice, education, research, and/or administration.
