Albany Med Internal Medicine & Pediatrics Office
Our ambulatory office is located in Cohoes, which is about 10 miles north of Albany. Staffed by our Med-Peds faculty, it is a Patient Centered Medical Home for over 12,000 patients and a home away from home for our residents. The residents develop and maintain their own panel of patients; among these are patients that the residents care for during their inpatient, newborn nursery and emergency department rotations. Interns attend continuity clinic one session per week while residents attend two sessions per week. The PCMH residency practice has a dedicated nurse and administrative support staff to help with day-to-day patient coordination. The practice also has support from three registered nurses who provide case management for complex patients, lactation counseling, and diabetes management. Also available within our Internal Medicine & Pediatrics office is our Primary Care Sports Medicine Fellowship, adult and pediatric behavioral health, cardiology, and access to echocardiography.
