The resident provides direct patient care on interdisciplinary teams on required clinical rotations in internal medicine, critical care, and infectious diseases. The resident also has a longitudinal experience in an ambulatory clinic. A variety of elective rotations are available within the VA medical center. Residents deliver presentations to a variety of audiences. An independent or collaborative project is completed during the residency year. Educational experiences help prepare residents for teaching in both the didactic and experiential setting.
