BUMC-SC is the home of our Family Medicine adult inpatient service. At BUMC-SC we care for a large underserved population, including our own clinic patients, under- or uninsured individuals, undocumented immigrants, prisoners from the county jail, and homeless individuals. Residents are exposed to critical care from their very first family medicine in-patient month as an intern. Attendings include faculty from the Alvernon clinic as well as family medicine hospitalists. Interns rotate through the Emergency Medicine service, while second and third year residents rotate through the surgery service and outpatient pediatric clinic.
