What's New

  • New Assistant Residency Director - Stephanie Catanese, MD

    Dr. Stephanie Catanese has been named Assistant Residency Director. We are pleased to have her join the residency leadership team!
  • Internal Medicine Residency Wellness Committee

    The inaugural meeting of the IM Residency Wellness Committee was held this spring and welcomed new intern members this past July. The group is led by Chief Resident Page Widick and consists of residents from all tracks and PG years. Faculty members from all three participating institutions also serve in an advisory capacity. The group meets regularly with the dual goals of developing a database of useful mental and physical health resources for residents, as well as the creation of events and activities that will promote self-care and combat burnout among our residents.
  • Procedure Rotation & Simulation Grant

    Under the leadership of Dr. Andrew Levinson from the Division of Pulmonary, Critical Care and Sleep Medicine, a simulation-based procedure rotation enters its second year in AY 2016-2017. Residents use high fidelity simulation manikins based not only at the Rhode Island Hospital Simulation Center, but also "in situ" simulation utilizing a procedure room (proximally located to patient care areas) in order to be able to practice bedside procedures immediately prior to performing the procedure on actual patients under supervision.
  • Center for Primary Care (CPC) Continuity Clinic Curriculum

    The resident primary care continuity clinic has initiated a new interactive ambulatory curriculum, under the direction of Faculty member Mindy Sobota, MD. The curriculum is posted on the new Brown IM Canvas website (see below) and available for review prior to the educational session, employing a “flipped classroom” format. Early experience has been very positive and modules are expanding, with substantial input from residents, in particular members of the Clinician-educator Track.
