Due to our 1:1 team structure and reasonable inpatient workloads, we continue to maintain a weekly continuity clinic. We feel this is a much better system for continuity clinic compared with an X+Y for many reasons:
- More than half your clinics will be supervised by your clinic preceptor, allowing you to develop a longitudinal relationship and receive ongoing feedback.
- Residents maintain their own panel of patients, who want a primary care physician who can see them as needed. When they are ill or need follow up they want to see you, not "someone on the team."
- Results, patient messages, and nursing requests require regular follow up. If a test you ordered is abnormal, we believe it's vital that you have the opportunity to review with your patient.
