Special Events and Support

Primary Care Interest Groups and Social Events

Our primary care interest group meets quarterly at the home of a faculty member for dinner. Each gathering focuses on a topic of interest ranging from career development to innovative models of care to counseling patients on nutrition. These informal gatherings are designed to enhance collegiality among faculty and housestaff. In addition, quarterly social events are scheduled by the Chief Medical Resident. They have included theatre outings, hiking and fishing trips, and holiday celebrations.

Society of General Internal Medicine Meetings

Primary Care Track residents are strongly encouraged to attend the regional and national general medicine meetings and present a clinical vignette or research abstract. BIDMC residents have won numerous awards in recent years. Funding from the Department of Medicine is available to defray the cost of one conference.

Mentorship and Career Counseling

Primary Care Track residents are matched early in their training with a primary care faculty member based upon their interests. The mentor will meet with them regularly throughout the course of their residency training and provide professional guidance and support, as well as career counseling.
