Continuity of Care Clinic

Residents maintain a panel of patients in an outpatient setting through a Internal Medicine continuity of care clinic at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics or the Veterans Affairs Medical Center for all five years of training. Working as a team with faculty physicians, nurses, and medical assistants, residents provide comprehensive care to patients with an emphasis on chronic disease management. During inpatient psychiatry rotations, residents are scheduled for one half-day per week in their continuity of care clinic. 

During medicine rotations, the continuity clinic is built in with a 4+1 model, where you will spend an entire week dedicated to the ambulatory experience. See the Internal Medicine page about the 4+1 system for more information.
