The Primary Care Program at the Massachusetts General Hospital is designed to develop competence in the full range of problems encountered by general internists delivering primary care. House staff spend 3 years in the program, which starts with internship, includes a senior residency, and fulfills the requirements for board eligibility In internal medicine. Half of the training is provided in outpatient care settings. House staff assume responsibility for organization and operation of an ambulatory medical unit. In addition, there is supervised instruction in office gynecology, orthopedics, ear, nose and throat, dermatology, and psychiatry. Close integration with the traditional inpatient-oriented training program is maintained to ensure commensurate growth and competence in management of acute, life-threatening disease.
