Internal Medicine Services. At the HFMH, Hospitalists and private physicians provide supervision and training of the residents. On these services, residents are responsible for all major aspects of patient care. They work one-on-one with the attending faculty physician in the provision of care. Faculty physicians on these services give increasing autonomy to residents as they gain competence during the course of their training. Faculty on these services round daily at bedside with trainees to review written notes, assessments, and patient management plans. Academic teaching occurs during these rounds.
Subspecialty Services. Subspecialty rotations are provided throughout the Henry Ford Health depending on where the best educational experiences can be endowed. These can be at any of the inpatient campuses or in private doctors’ offices, particularly for those subspecialties that are primarily outpatient in nature. Intensive care rotations are supervised by board certified critical care physicians and are staffed with a team of senior residents, junior residents and mid-level providers.
Simulation Training. All residents participate in simulation training at the Henry Ford Health Simulation Center located within the Henry Ford Hospital main campus. Residents participate in the Fundamentals of Critical Care Support course and an institutional curriculum covering such subjects as delivering bad news, informed consent, disclosing error and appropriate hand-off communication.
