Academic Half Day

Every Wednesday residents will have protected time from 2:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for educational activities. The program will follow the ABIM boards blueprint for educational topics. Topics are designed to be interactive, team-based learning. Lecture examples include organ specific disease processes, EKG reviews, visual diagnosis, board review questions, high value and cost effective care, healthcare disparities, and wellness topics. All residents are expected to attend except for MICU and night float teams.

Clinic Academic Half Day

Residents in their ambulatory clinic weeks will have protected time for cased-based outpatient educational topics, simulation, and ultrasound training on Tuesday afternoons.

Simulation and Point-of-Care Ultrasound:

The Internal Medicine residency program at Mary Washington Healthcare has developed an interactive ultrasound curriculum comprised of a series of point-of-care ultrasound diagnostic and procedural skills integral to the practice of an internist.

Our residents will follow the Montefiore-10 curriculum and are introduced to ultrasound skills and knowledge including:

  • Performing paracentesis, thoracentesis, and lumbar puncture under ultrasound
  • Performing peripheral venous and arterial catheterization under ultrasound
  • Ultrasound-guided central venous catheter placement
  • Cardiopulmonary diagnostic ultrasound
  • Diagnosis of deep vein thrombosis with ultrasound
  • Review of anatomical ultrasound for many solid organs

Residents will participate in a two-hour simulation and ultrasound half day on Tuesday afternoons during their clinic week on the 4+2+2 schedule.

By the end of PGY3 year, internal medicine residents will have had ample bedside ultrasound and complicated patient/code training.
