This chapter reviews the most common scheduling models used in internal medicine residency programs. The true impact of different scheduling models on outcomes such as patient continuity, access to care, resident satisfaction, and clinical outcomes has been evaluated in a handful of studies. This chapter will review the current evidence surrounding scheduling models. Each scheduling model has potential benefits and barriers that should be considered when a residency is considering converting to a new model.
