4+1 Scheduling Model

Starting in July of 2023, we will adopt a modified four plus one scheduling model for senior residents on wards rotations. This model will allow the senior residents to spend four weeks on inpatient wards without having any interruption for seeing patients in the clinic setting. Every ward block will then be followed by a full week of Continuity Clinic where residents will see their own clinic patients without any conflict from clinical work in other areas. This week of Continuity Clinic will be scheduled sometime in the following block to maximize resident continuity with their clinic preceptors.

It is our belief that this schedule will still prioritize continuity between residents and their patients while also decreasing the inherent challenging of seeing patients in the clinic while also being responsible for managing a team on wards.
