The overall educational goals are for use by both residents and faculty of the Graduate Medical Education Department at Bingham Internal Medicine Residency Program (BIMR). The goal of the residency program is to teach each resident the fundamentals of high quality and cost effective patient care, the application of medical knowledge to the clinical setting, and the professionalism, interpersonal skills, and practice-based learning proficiencies that expected of a physician. The aim is to develop clinicians who have achieved competence in the six core domains outlined by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

  1. Patient care that is compassionate, appropriate, and effective for the treatment of health problems.

  2. Medical knowledge pertaining to established and evolving biomedical, clinical sciences and the application of evidence-based medical knowledge in patient care.

  3. Practice-based learning and improvement that involves investigation and evaluation of their own patient care, appraisal and assimilation of scientific evidence, and improvement in patient care.

  4. Interpersonal and communication skills that result in effective exchange of information and collaboration with patients, their families, and other health care professionals.

  5. Professionalism as evident through a commitment to carrying out professional responsibilities, adherence to ethical principles, and sensitivity to a diverse patient population.

  6. Systems-based practice as manifested by actions that demonstrate an awareness of and responsiveness to the larger context and system of health care and the ability to effectively call on system resources to provide care of optimal value.

Residents are responsible for learning to incorporate these into daily practice under guidance from faculty. Faculty are expected to review applicable curricula prior to the start of each clinical rotation and to ensure that resident learning is consistent with the stated goals and objectives. Both faculty and residents are encouraged to provide feedback and suggestions for improvement to this curriculum.
