– Priority scheduling for outpatient focused electives in Dermatology, Endocrinology, Rheumatology, Gastroenterology and Nephrology.
– Additional exposure to GIM (General Internal Medicine) outside of your continuity clinic. At least 8 weeks spread over 2 years in 2-week blocks. Opportunity to work in another clinic gaining mentorship, further exposure to more common outpatient concerns as well as general tips to a successful outpatient practice.
– Track still allows flexibility for careers in hospital and/or ambulatory setting, meeting all graduation requirements; additionally, sets you up well for fellowship applications in outpatient practices (Endocrinology, Rheumatology, etc).
