The Montgomery Family Medicine Residency Program is an unopposed, community based program sponsored by Baptist Health. More than 500 physicians in the Montgomery/River Region area have privileges at the Baptist Health facilities and are very supportive of our program and our residents.
The first year rotations concentrate on inpatient medicine and pediatrics, surgery, OB/GYN, pediatrics, adult and pediatric emergency medicine and the newborn nursery. After developing a strong foundation in these areas, the second and third year curricula expand the outpatient experience with further rotations and electives in specialty fields. Each resident also has their own longitudinal continuity clinic for their private patients across all three years of training.
This three-year program (PGY-1 to PGY-3) is affiliated with Harvard Medical School and is based at BIDMC, a 57,000 visit per year Level I trauma center. Residents rotate at Boston Children's Hospital, Brockton Hospital, Cambridge Hospital, Tufts Medical Center, St. Luke's Hospital, St. Vincent Hospital, Mt. Auburn Hospital and BIDMC-Needham.
In anatomic pathology sign out, residents prepare their own diagnoses and are then in a position to take full advantage of sign out with staff members. In clinical pathology, residents gain experience during daily rounds with attendings, Socratic tutorials, and through positioning of residents as an intermediary between clinician and laboratory. There are daily teaching and case management conferences covering the different pathology specialties.
The core mission of HSS is to develop psychiatric leaders who possess state-of-the-art skills in biopsychosocial assessment and integrated pharmacotherapy and psychotherapy, particularly in application to the seriously mentally ill. Special strengths of the program include diverse patient populations; clinical training in a variety of healthcare systems; and opportunities for guided career development in research, healthcare organizational leadership, and teaching.
At the core of our program is our commitment to the highest quality medical care in an intellectually stimulating environment. The Brigham's anesthesia department has renowned faculty who are dedicated to the teaching and support of our accomplished residents so that they will be superbly prepared to practice in any setting, however challenging. We are fortunate to have all the resources of the Harvard affiliated hospitals available to us, with an unmatched diversity of clinical cases and outstanding research and public service opportunities.
The mission of the Brigham and Women's Hospital Internal Medicine Residency is to provide outstanding clinical training and individualized career mentoring required to become skilled internists prepared to tackle individual and societal healthcare challenges as leaders in academic medicine.
