Resident Clinic - Dept. of Internal Medicine - Beaumont Trenton
At South Valley Medical Center, Dr. Lovy brings patients the most up-to-date and thorough medical care available. His association with Beaumont Trenton, as the program director for the Department of Internal Medicine, is one of the many ways he stays on the leading edge for his practice.
Under the direct supervision of Dr. Lovy, residents (doctors who have recently graduated from medical school and are honing their skills) learn directly in a day-to-day setting. Students who are in their last two years of medical school can also assume some level of patient care, such as taking a patient’s medical history or doing an exam – but this happens with a higher degree of supervision.
When our patients see a resident or a student, they get the added benefit of an extended team approach to their medical care. This gives the highest quality of care and attention enhanced in a practice that also promotes growth and learning.
Being treated in a physician’s office utilizing residents often means better care for the patient. As a teaching physician, Dr. Lovy constantly gives lectures and educational opportunities to those in the program, allowing him to always stay on top of the latest research and developments in medicine.
The presence of residents can also provide faster care, since they can visit different patients simultaneously, and then discuss their findings one-on-one with Dr. Lovy. This process makes the coordination of care more efficient. When multiple doctors discuss patient care, the patient benefits from greater in-depth thinking, which can make complex medical cases more easily diagnosed and treated.
Our residents are eager learners and bright young clinicians. As Program Director, Dr. Lovy is directly involved in selecting ideal candidates to continue their training, representing a pool of doctors that earned his utmost confidence in their skills and knowledge.
