General Medicine Rotation

The inpatient general internal medicine service is staffed by five teams.

Each PGY-1 resident is responsible for the care of five to 10 patients. PGY-1 residents perform initial evaluations, design treatment plans, write all orders and act as each patient’s principal physician during the hospital stay. PGY-1 residents, under supervision of PGY-2 or PGY-3 residents and an attending physician, will also perform invasive procedures.

A teaching attending physician is assigned to each general medicine inpatient service and rounds with the team. New admissions are presented, differential diagnoses and treatment discussed, and pertinent physical findings demonstrated.


Critical Care Rotation

Each PGY-1 medicine resident has a one-month critical care rotation and provides our residents with broad exposure to both medical and surgical patients ranging from acute and chronic diseases, complex cardiac surgery and transplant surgery post-operative management. An intensivist is assigned to the critical care multidisciplinary rounds each day with the residents.


Emergency Rotation

During the one-month emergency room rotation, PGY-1 residents care for a wide variety of emergency cases. Residents evaluate, treat and triage patients across a variety of disciplines and board-certified emergency room physicians supervise and train the residents.


Outpatient Rotation

The Internal Medicine Residency Program has partnered with Tarrant County’s FQHC, The North Texas Area Community Health Centers. Each year residents will spend 10 dedicated weeks in the continuity clinic and complete 50 half day sessions for a total of 150 sessions during the 36 months of training. Predictive scheduling using the 4+1 model will help facilitate the scheduling of residents and patients to maximize the development of continuous relationships with a panel of patients.

Daily noon didactic conferences will be conducted as a mixture of resident and faculty delivered lectures and workshops which will include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Morning Report
  • Core Clinical Lectures
  • Grand Rounds
  • Morbidity & Mortality conference
  • Board Review
  • Journal Club
  • Case Presentations
