Acute Care

This one-week rotation is spent at the Turley Center. It is paired with a Turley Service week, so that you spend one week in the hospital, then one week in the clinic, or vice versa. For most of this week you are the acute doctor, which means that you see patients who are acutely ill and could not wait for an appointment with their usual doctor. This tends to be fast-paced and rewarding in that you are treating problems that are quickly and easily solved (UTIs, OM, etc.), common problems you will typically see in a busy family practice.
