Comprehensive Program Ensuring Your Success

Curriculum Schedule 2019-10-31T03:58:28+00:00

Our comprehensive curriculum not only delivers all essential rotations required by an accredited family medicine residency program, but also provides rigorous procedural hands-on training, ensuring your success. We have a 100% Board Certification pass rate for all residents since we were founded in 1979.

There are considerable operative obstetrical experiences available for all residents interested in incorporating OB into their future practice, including participation in our OB Training Track. Residents interested in caring for the vulnerable populations may select to participate in our Care of the Underserved training track.  Residents are also well trained in invasive procedures such as central and arterial lines, thoracentesis, paracentesis, lumbar punctures, circumcisions, and chest tubes.  Outpatient procedures available to schedule for your own patients or to perform for your fellow residents’ patients, as needed, include colposcopy, cardiac treadmill, GI Endoscopy, I & D’s of abcesses, and lesion removal.  Certain aspects of the curriculum are presented longitudinally throughout your training such as behavioral science, community medicine, practice management, and legal issues in medicine.  There are also multiple elective opportunities available.
