Some Highlights from Selected Months

ALT

Adolescent Medicine

In this block, residents enjoy the opportunity to delve into the many issues surrounding the care of adolescents. Exposure to eating disorders, STIs, Job Corps, school-based clinics, adolescent lock-up and much more.

Culture, Society and Health

Culture, Society and Health block provides residents a variety of community-based agency and advocacy experiences which encourage broad thinking about social determinants of health.  The block helps familiarize residents with both available resources and ways to be involved in their communities.   Residents prepare a literature review of a topic that arises during their experiences which they present at the end of the block.  Projects are encouraged as well.

Research/Procedures

This block is a combination of protected time to work on the resident research project combined with flexible time to practice common procedures that are done in the Baystate Emergency Department. Residents can perfect their skills at suturing, splinting and placing intravenous lines among others. The protected research time allows the resident a focused experience to move their research project along and prepare any data they have available if they wish to present at a National Meeting during their third year.
