Ambulatory Medicine

Ambulatory medicine is a vital part of the Overlook Medical Center Internal Medicine Residency Program. In fact, one third of the total patient care experience occurs outside the traditional hospital setting.

Ambulatory medicine addresses the treatment of common chronic disease, as well as subsets of diagnoses not often seen by internists in hospitalized patients. It requires knowledge in special areas such as preventive medicine and procedural skills – for example, joint injection and ophthalmologic examination.

Our ambulatory medicine curriculum is divided into the following components:

  • Longitudinal (continuity) office experience
  • Ambulatory block experience
  • Community health rotation

For the continuity office experience, patients are assigned to a resident who is their primary caregiver for the duration of the resident's training.

During the ambulatory block, residents spend two weeks concentrating on subspecialties unique to ambulatory medicine such as allergy, dermatology, HIV disease, urgent care, pain management, otolaryngology, orthopedics and other subspecialties. Residents also get to participate in our subspecialty clinics:  endocrinology, neurology, nephrology, cardiology and rheumatology.

During the community health rotation, residents learn the clinical, administrative, consultative and analytical skills necessary to successfully manage a busy medical practice. Discrete topics include epidemiology, telephone medicine, medical informatics and quality assurance.
