Curriculum

Our program boasts a robust curriculum with experiences in inpatient, ambulatory, obstetric, and pediatric medicine. We have a busy hospital service, with an open-ICU. Residents work closely with specialists to care for hospitalized patients.

We offer pediatric inpatient training in one of the nation’s premiere pediatric hospitals with Pediatric Intensive Care Unit and Neonatal Intensive Care Unit specialists readily available.

Our family medicine continuity clinics provide ample training in outpatient medicine. Geriatric continuity care is provided to residents at a local assisted living and nursing home facility. Selected patient home visits are also performed throughout the year. Sixteen weeks of elective time allow residents to customize their training needs. Daily conferences and didactic presentations supplement the clinical curriculum.

Our residents have the opportunity to enhance procedural skills through focused experiences in the ICU and gynecology clinics, as well as in rotations in gastroenterology, general surgery, sports medicine, and orthopedics. We also perform multiple office procedures in our family medicine clinic.

Safeguards are built in to encourage open and responsive communication among residents and faculty. Monthly meetings address resident issues, resident/faculty issues, and patient care issues. Advisors and mentors are always available to address issues as they arise. Patient care issues are discussed among residents in monthly Balint groups led by our clinical psychologist.
