HVMA/Atrius Health Clinical Sites and Patient Care Preceptors
Ambulatory training in primary care, based at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates (HVMA)/Atrius Health, is a key part of the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) Residency in Primary Care and Population Medicine. Each resident manages his or her own primary care practice, partnered with a superb clinician-educator at one of the HVMA/Atrius Health centers in the metropolitan Boston area. The close relationship between each resident and his or her clinical preceptor is a unique feature of this residency. Each resident practices side-by-side with his or her preceptor during the entire three years of residency, gaining valuable insight into longitudinal care and practice management.
Sessions with Brigham and HVMA/Atrius Health subspecialists are integrated into the outpatient rotations so that all graduates are exposed to the full spectrum of outpatient management and learn advanced techniques in the care of complex patients. Throughout the residency, the diverse patient population within HVMA/Atrius Health provides residents with a full range of clinical training opportunities in a highly-developed practice setting.
