Adult Medicine

First year Overlook Family Medicine residents spend 2.5 months on our Adult Medicine Rotation (two weeks on nights) participating on a team that consists of a supervising senior resident (which may be a family medicine resident), one or two first year residents (who may also be family medicine residents), and a third or fourth year medical student. Residents are intimately involved in the care of the team's patients, and work closely with the patients' private medical attendings and consultants. They spend one month in their second year and one month in their third year on our Adult Medicine Rotation, where they supervise residents of our Medicine Team, and meet with a medicine attending three or more times each week for our Attending Rounds.

On weekdays, all of the medical teams meet for Teaching Rounds with an Adult Medicine residency faculty member. Daily Work Rounds are conducted by the team's senior resident. In addition, there are daily medicine lectures including the Medicine Journal Club and the weekly Medicine Grand Rounds.
