Continuity Clinic

In the Medical Ambulatory Clinic residents spend five ½-day sessions per Ambulatory Clinic week seeing patients as a Continuity Clinic experience. Clinic sessions have weekly clinic conference.


Procedures

Procedures for which all residents must develop both knowledge and performance competencies are ACLS, draw arterial blood, Pap smear and endocervical culture, draw venous blood, and placing IV lines. Opportunities for more invasive procedures are available in plenty and are strongly encouraged.


Step 3

Step 3 must be taken by August 1 of your second year of residency in order to continue in the program. Residents must have taken the test that gives you a passing score by January 31 of your second year. Interns are strongly encouraged to take Step 3 by June.


Duty Hours

Work hours will be tracked with the KRONOS system. All residents are required to swipe in on arrival to the hospital and swipe out when leaving. Compliance with the duty-hour requirements of the ACGME is monitored closely.


Medical Students

AGH/WPH works with third and fourth year medical students from Drexel University, Temple University and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. Residents will be involved in teaching medical students during their training, whether in a didactic, clinical or on-call setting. For the resident, teaching medical students allows development of their own ability for self-directed learning, fulfillment of training objectives and exposure to work that could comprise a significant part of their future practice.


Research

The program actively facilitates resident involvement in scholarly activities including research. Mary Chester-Wasko, MD, serves as the program’s director of scholarly activity and resident research activity is substantially supported by the nationally renowned Allegheny-Singer Research Institution.
