Family Medicine Residency: Areas of Concentration
Because the specialty of Family Medicine is broad and the opportunities in practice are plentiful, we have developed several enhanced curricular options for our residents. We have three Areas of Concentration (AOCs): Global (International) Health, Obstetrics and Sports Medicine. These tracks offer our residents opportunities to augment their learning in specific areas of Family Medicine. Residents who elect an AOC will complete the outlined curriculum, gaining expertise and advanced skills geared for use in their future practices.
Residents who have specific interests in one of these areas of Family Medicine will benefit from the structured curriculum and guidance offered by the AOC Coordinator. The coordinator will work closely with the resident to individually specialize the curriculum.
To acknowledge the added expertise gained by these curricular tracks, the resident will receive a letter of recognition from the AOC coordinator. The Program Director will also recognize the resident's additional training in the resident's Graduate Summary letter.
