The residency program has an affiliation with St. Dominic Memorial Hospital for inpatient delivery of care and education. The program operates an inpatient service of continuity and unreferred ED patients. The goal of the service is to maintain a service of 15 patients minimum to accommodate the RRC-FM requirements for residency training.
All faculty have privileges at St. Dominic. One faculty provides hospital team leading for the resident and student team on a rotating basis. While team leading, this faculty is onsite 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and exempt from other clinical duties. Coverage of the service on nights, weekends and holidays is by the on-call faculty. Faculty have ICU and CCU admission privileges so residents manage their own patients in these settings.
