Clinical and Didactic Program Experience
The Residency program at St. Luke's Hospital offers the type of interaction with doctors and direct patient care that will help you in achieving your goal to become an impactful practicing and consulting physician. Resident experiences combine inpatient rotations in a private suburban hospital with an ambulatory experience in an urban public clinic. As a result, residents are well prepared for multiple career pathways, spanning from the primary care of adults to the management of critically-ill patients with complex diagnostic problems. The program utilizes over 100 physicians who contribute to the teaching mission as full and part-time faculty.
In 2012, we implemented an ambulatory block schedule, providing a broader ambulatory medicine experience. Forming the backbone of the didactic experience are the daily Morning Report, medical Grand Rounds, daily Noon Conferences, Autopsy Conference and Journal Club. The affiliation of the Residency in Medicine with Saint Louis University School of Medicine provides additional opportunities for academic experiences during elective rotations.
Progress in acquisition of medical knowledge is assessed by in-service examinations which are graded and reviewed at a Noon Conference. All residents are required to take the American College of Physicians In-Training Examination, a standardized test given yearly. An ABIM Board Review class has been integrated into our curriculum.
The commitment of our St. Luke's faculty to your education ensures individualized attention, a pleasant work environment and a wonderful quality of life in St. Louis and St. Luke's Hospital.
