Program Description

Navy Medical Center Portsmouth Internal Medicine Residency is one of the busiest and highest acuity clinical experiences in the DOD. Our medicine wards benefit from a unique sharing agreement with the Hampton, Virginia Veteran’s Administration Hospital, thereby increasing diversity and complexity of care. In addition to interactive didactics inspired by the book "Make it Stick" residents participate in longitudinal simulation and ultrasound curriculums to further develop their practical clinical skills. In the outpatient setting (3+1 model), our residents are divided into clinic firms with two core faculty with four interns and four residents to create a tight-knit community within the broader residency community composed of two core faculty and near-peer mentors. During outpatient clinic weeks, our residents manage busy patient panels while learning about Military Operational topics, Social Determinants of Health, and Quality Improvement methods.
