    PGY 1

    Interns have 6 2-week Clinic Blocks, MICU and cardiology ward/ICU rotations, as well as 5 ward rotations. Residents rotate on Internal Medicine ward services across all three sites: TGH, Moffitt, and the James A Haley VA. Some residents have one ward replaced with an ER rotation during their first year, others have ER as a senior resident. House officer rotations (night coverage) will be 1-2 2-week blocks, and do not start until after August to allow interns to appropriately transition to internship. The remaining blocks are electives that residents give preferential rank. Please see an example intern schedule below

    Elective are assigned to provide residents exposure across all subspecialties and unique facets or practices of medicine (e.g. telemedicine, hospital administration and quality). Residents prioritize their elective requests annually before the schedule is created. Certain electives (e.g. Geriatrics, neurology) are graduation requirements and will be integrated into each resident’s schedule within the three years of training.

    PGY 2

    The robust training received during the intern affords our residents the skills necessary to take the leadership role on ward teams, as the code team leader while on the cardiology service, and supervise procedures. Our second year residents are the lead of the cardiology ward rotation, and assist the third year residents in the MICU. They have rotations, called night float, in which they are admitting patients from the ER to the ward services or cardiology ward. Additionally, the PGY 2 class mans the House Officer rotation during the first blocks of the year to ease the intern transition.

    PGY 3

    The amount of core rotations during the PGY3 year decreases as residents are preparing for the next stage of their career. This allows more flexibility for scheduling interviews for fellowship or hospitalist/primary care practices, all the while studying for the ABIM Board Exam. Third year residents lead the Medical Intensive Care Unit.
