CLINICAL ROTATIONS WITH MEANINGFUL RESPONSIBILITY

Certification by The American Board of Internal Medicine requires 36 months of training in Internal Medicine. 24 months must involve "meaningful" patient care responsibilities. This means that the resident is directly involved in patient care, including the initial assessment, daily progress notes, order writing, test scheduling and interpretation, and management. In our departments the following rotations qualify as meaningful patient care months:

    ER

    GENERAL INTERNAL MEDICINE FLOOR ROTATION

    MICU/CCU ROTATION

    VA OUTPATIENT CLINIC ROTATION

    GENERAL MEDICINE CONSULT ROTATION

    URGENT CARE CLINIC ROTATION

    HEMATOLOGY-ONCOLOGY FLOOR ROTATION (STARTING 1995)

    NIGHT FLOAT ROTATION

In general, subspecialty rotations do not count toward months of meaningful patient responsibility as the resident primarily provides advice to the primary care team.
