Welcome to the Yale Office-based Medicine Curriculum

We have developed an innovate syllabus that covers a wide span of primary care topics, known as the Yale Office-based Medicine Curriculum. The curriculum provides a case-driven, evidence-based approach for what we clinically practice and supplements practical experience with a didactic foundation, particularly in the case of unusual conditions that a learner might encounter only rarely. Our resource also provides updates when new developments occur in therapy or standards of care. Topics range from "bread and butter" internal medicine -such as chronic management of diabetes, hypertension, and prevention -to subspecialty areas, such as orthopedics, rheumatology, and dermatology. Each volume includes chapters relevant to current practice, such as coding, ethics and professionalism, or economic aspects of medicine.

At our institution, the curriculum is used in our internal medicine and medicine/pediatrics residencies. Every six months, learners receive a syllabus covering 24 cases with related questions, and one or more high quality, peer-reviewed articles. Over three years of training, learners will be exposed to a compendium of 144 different topics as part of the rotating syllabus of six volumes, every six months. Users also have access to the full set of archived chapters. The Faculty Guide can also be used by practicing clinicians for self-directed learning. Free Continuing Medical Education credit is available to subscribers through Yale University School of Medicine.
