Starting in July, 2014 all three years of residents will be
on a 4+1 Schedule. The currently listed schedules are the current
schedules for the 2013-2014 year. As soon as we have the 4+1 schedules

This schedule minimizes conflicting
inpatient and outpatient responsibilities, allowing residents to focus
primarily on one educational endeavor at a time. We think this optimizes each
learning experience – both in the outpatient and inpatient realm. We also
believe this schedule enhances the continuity clinic experience by allowing for
greater familiarization with the clinic setting, which becomes an educational
home throughout residency.
For interns next year, the 4 week blocks of inpatient time
or electives for each of our tracks will include:
interns will attend an ambulatory clinic during their +1 week at the VA
