Curriculum Schedule

Our program curriculum supplies all of the essential rotations that an accredited family medicine residency program requires to train residents eligible for board certification. In addition, we are particularly strong in procedural “hands on” training.  There are considerable operative obstetrical experiences available for all residents interested in incorporating OB into their future practice.  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 for you 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.
