Continuity Practice Sites
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. Faculty have expertise in chronic disease management, HIV infection, women's health, minority health, addiction medicine, geriatrics, student health, and preventive medicine.
