Abstract

The authors describe a primary care-based educational and practice model that integrates general medicine resident education in outpatient rheumatology with specialty fellowship training. Compared with the use of traditional specialty clinics, the model provides better access and service to patients and more appropriate training for residents. Revenues from clinical service delivered by facultysupervised residents and fellows support 80% of the operating costs and educational activities of the model. The conceptual framework for the model reconciles the educational goals and practice philosophies of general medicine and specialty training and is applicable to training in other predominantly outpatient specialty areas.
