Med-Peds and 4+1 Schedules

In 2011, the Internal Medicine residency program transitioned to a block scheduling system called "4+1" in which 4-week blocks of inpatient or consult service were followed by a 1-week ambulatory experience referred to as the "+1" week. The new system required division of the resident body into 5 rotational groups called "Firms" and resulted in a unique opportunity for building camaraderie and professional development.

As a tribute to its categorical integration, the Loyola Med-Peds program followed suit in the same year by incorporating our residents into Medicine's 4+1 scheme. Med-Peds residents rotate along with their Firm peers and participate in the "+1" week experience during their Medicine time. The half-day educational session known as Friday School (can you guess which day of the week it occurs?) is considered so valuable for learning and Firm bonding that Med-Peds residents attend those sessions even during Peds time.

The "+1" week varies in content depending on level of training but consistently helps to satisfy the educational requirement for ambulatory exposure in Internal Medicine.

Interns complete week-long experiences in either Urgent Care or Emergency Medicine and sample "+1" schedules are as follows:

  MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT SUN
AM Continuity Clinic Urgent Care Urgent Care Urgent Care Friday School GOLDEN WEEKEND
PM Urgent Care Urgent Care Urgent Care Urgent Care Urgent Care    

 

  MON TUE WED THU FRI SAT SUN
AM Continuity Clinic   ED   Friday School ED

Senior residents utilize the "+1" week for grouped subspecialty clinic experiences and Med-Peds specific clinics, as outlined in this sample schedule:
