Prince George’s Hospital IM Residency program has a close affiliation with Ross University and Howard University. Ross is the oldest of the Caribbean medical schools. Each year 600 Ross graduates enter residency programs in the US. Howard University is the first of the historically black colleges and has had a medical school since 1858.
PGHC offers a 3 month core rotation in which each student works directly with a PG Year 1 resident. Residents on subspecialty rotations provide one didactic lecture a month to the students in the afternoon. The students also attend the morning reports and noon conferences. Students work one on one with residents in the medical subspecialties and as Sub-Interns in their 4th year in medicine and cardiology.
Howard students regularly rotate on the wards and in the ambulatory clinic as well.
The structure provides ample opportunities for residents to teach students at each level of responsibility.
