Residency Program Offers Patient Care to Diverse Patient Population
Scripps Mercy’s residency programs provide a friendly, close-knit environment that balances service and education. The programs’ small size provides greater opportunities for residents to interact with faculty and conduct clinical research.
All first, second, and third year internal medicine residents interact daily with eighteen transitional year interns, who have matched in anesthesiology, radiology, radiation-oncology, ophthalmology or dermatology. These residents come to Scripps Mercy for broad, medical training before entering their specialty residencies.
The hospital offers a socioeconomically, ethnically and clinically diverse patient population. Medical Intensive Care Unit rotations provide multiple opportunities to intubate and place central lines and chest tubes. On the wards, and subspecialty rotations, residents regularly perform LPs, thoracentesis, paracentesis and bone marrow examinations. Residents on subspecialty electives often work directly with the subspecialty attending, performing procedures and consultations. Scripps Mercy faculty and residents develop and implement resident-driven clinical guidelines and clinical performance improvement projects.
