The UWMC General Internal Medicine Center at Roosevelt provides a robust and complete training for all residents. With a breadth and diversity of patients that is unmatched in the UW system, this continuity experience will provide a solid foundation for the resident to pursue any future. Graduates from this clinic are well trained to take on careers in community practices, academic and subspecialty medicine.

Our clinic faculty are a deeply devoted team of career clinician-educators who are passionate about and expert in the training, mentoring, and coaching of medicine residents. These faculty empower residents to function as PCPs, providing the right balance of supervision, continuity, and autonomy throughout residency.  There are also weekly pre-clinic conferences developed by attendings and residents to continue our pursuit of learning. Many residents have also taken on clinic quality improvement projects, providing another unique educational opportunity during residency.

The GIMC patient population is both medically and socially diverse, providing residents with an outstanding foundation in primary care and outpatient medicine that will service them well regardless of their ultimate chosen field. At GIMC, patients include >poor and medically indigent, many non-English speaking immigrant populations, students, the elderly, and working people looking for excellent medical care.  They range from healthy with a focus on wellness to medically complex patients requiring the quaternary care services at UWMC.

The Roosevelt Clinic continually strives to provide a supportive and nurturing environment for residents while offering top quality ambulatory education preparing residents for practice.
