Summa IM Residency Ambulatory Care
The Internal Medicine Center serves as a critical resource for the community by providing patients of all backgrounds and needs the primary care they need to pursue their own best health.
The IMC is certified as a Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home.
Interns Join the Internal Medicine Center Practice
We are excited to welcome the 2016 interns to our program and to the Internal Medicine Center practice. Even though they may not be scheduled for their dedicated ambulatory month until later in the year, all our interns will receive a vigorous training for our EHR (a version of EPIC called CarePath) and an orientation to the staff and patient care at the IMC.
Interns: Stop by and let us know you are here. Everyone is ready to assist you in learning to see patients in the ambulatory setting as the newest members of our team.
What are Didactic Sessions?
How should I Prepare for Didactic Sessions?
When and Where?
Didactic Cases are specially written to introduce you to the key elements of the diagnosis and treatment of 10-12 of the most common conditions you are likely to see in the Internal Medicine Center practice. The cases include a real life presentation for the condition with questions that lead you through all relevant issues of diagnosis and treatment. Links are provided to critical and current evidence-based guidelines
This page contains a calendar and links to access all cases. If you are the lead or back up presenter, be prepared to read the case and guide the group through answering the questions.
Even if you are not leading, work through all the questions ahead of the session using the guideline links provided.

All Didactic Sessions are held in the Bullpen, or staffing area, in the IMC. Sessions start promptly at 8:00 so plan to be settled and ready to start before then.
Leaders, text your back up presenter if you know you will not be there on time.
