Continuity Clinic is the hub of the family medicine residency and is structured to prioritize longitudinal relationships for continuous management of chronic diseases.  It also provides the opportunity for practice-based learning, as residents analyze performance outcomes for their own patient panel and implement systematic changes for quality improvement.

Every resident will have a continuous Continuity Clinic coverage throughout their 3 years of training as follows:

  • PGY-1 residents: will be scheduled one ½ day session per week to begin to build their patient panel.
  • PGY-2 residents: will be scheduled two 1/2 days sessions per week.
  • PGY-3 residents: will be scheduled three 1/2 days sessions per week.

Each resident will be assigned a POCUS Butterfly iQ+ plus and an iPad mini at the beginning of their residency training.

Residents will receive (CME accredited) evidence-based POCUS educational courses and workshops with ongoing training, evaluation, and mentoring, to ensure you will learn all the necessary skills that are of high importance in primary care settings.


In addition to our In-House Specialties, residents have access RubiconMD through our EHR platform.

RubiconMD is a very rich E-Consult platform that is built into our EMR system, which allows you to empower clinical decision-making and diagnoses with a convenient, and same-day access to board-certified specialists, to allow you to deliver the best primary care experience to all patients and also earn CME credit at the same.

This amazing service is FREE for all, including both insured and uninsured patients.
