Where the learning happens: Residents rotate through three main sites for inpatient medicine: UConn Health John Dempsey Hospital, Hartford Hospital and Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center. Categorical medicine residents have a continuity clinic over their three years in the program at one of those same three sites or the Veteran’s Affair Hospital (VA) in Newington, Connecticut. Electives are both inpatient and outpatient and can be at any of the sites. PGY-2 & 3 residents have the opportunity to partake in a secondary clinic in a specialty field of interest one half-day a week during elective time.
