The Family Practice Inpatient Service in the Urban Teaching Hospital
Most university teaching hospitals now have family practice residency programs, but few have family practice inpatient services. Family practice residents must thus get most of their inpatient experience on other specialty services. A central dilemma in family medicine education is the amount of education and role modeling family practice residents receive from their own faculty as opposed to faculty in other specialties. Nowhere is this dilemma more in evidence than in inpatient training at university hospitals.
