Continuity Practice Sites

Healthcare Associates

Our hospital-based teaching practice is located in the Shapiro Clinical Center on the BIDMC East Campus.  Over 50 clinician educator faculty practice alongside medical residents and serve as their preceptors.  Our faculty have expertise in chronic disease management, geriatrics, women’s health, minority health, student health, HIV medicine, addiction medicine, health policy, health services research, and preventive medicine.  Physicians work closely with nurse practitioners, clinical nurses, mental health therapists, and community resource specialists to provide multidisciplinary care.  Whenever possible, residents are preferentially assigned to general medicine preceptors with similar interests. 

Veterans Administration Clinic, West Roxbury

Veterans Administration Clinic, Jamaica Plain

Located in Jamaica Plain (a nearby neighborhood of Boston), this clinic site provides care for a similar population as the West Roxbury VA, along with patients who have hepatitis C infection and a history of substance abuse.  Residents who have their continuity clinic at the VA often complement their experience by participating in a women's health elective.  This site is accessible by public transportation or automobile.
