Family Medicine Residency: Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to train residents to practice quality Family Medicine in a changing world. To do this, we emphasize fundamental skills while at the same time providing flexibility within the curriculum that allows residents to pursue special interests and tailor their education. As a result, our graduates go on to practice in a wide variety of settings. The program is "front-loaded" with more rotations being outpatient-based as residents advance in their training.
