Med-Peds Clinic

DCAMMed-Peds residents have their continuity clinics at the University of Chicago Primary Care Group clinic, which provides primary care to the north and east areas of Hyde Park and Kenwood neighborhoods. Residents spend on average one half-day per week in their continuity clinic starting early in their intern year–more during outpatient rotations and fewer during inpatient rotations–and will see a mix of adult and pediatric patients in the same clinic session. The Med-Peds faculty members rotate as preceptors for the resident clinics. During ambulatory electives, residents will have the opportunity to have a greater number of continuity and urgent care clinics during the week. Residents in our clinic benefit from integrated behavioral health support for patients, expert pharmacist help, attendings certified to perform and teach substance abuse and HCV therapy, same-site urgent care, on-site labs, opportunities to train in nexplanon administration and other aspects of women’s health, and an integrated inpatient-outpatient EMR. Our clinic is a special place, and our dedicated nurse (Mirthala), LPN (Deidre), and MA (Monica) help keep things running smoothly.
