Lankenau Medical Center has an internal medicine clinical care center onsite called Lankenau Medical Associates, a NCQA Level III Patient Centered Medical Home. Each categorical resident will build their own panel of patients over a three-year period. Every effort is made to provide continuity of care for patients from the inpatient to the outpatient setting.
Over the course of three years, all categorical residents will attend weekly continuity care sessions and develop proficiency in evaluating and treating patients with a variety of medical disorders under the supervision of attending physicians. Particular emphasis is placed on clinical question generation and evidenced based clinical decision making. Opportunities to rotate with internal medicine physicians as well as sub-specialists with offices onsite are also available.
All categorical residents will complete a carefully structured ambulatory block rotation that includes clinical experiences in nephrology, sports medicine, nutrition and diabetes, women’s health, a home visit and practice management.
Residents will spend one block working closely with a primary care physician.
The resident will complete a geriatric rotation at Saunders House, a nursing home facility, which is located on the property adjacent to Lankenau Medical Center.
