Curriculum

The Family Medicine Residency Program has been designed to fulfill the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) competencies in Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, and Systems-Based Practice. The curriculum offers a balanced learning environment within various settings (hospital, ambulatory, emergency, home and long-term care) and rotations in a variety of areas and specialties: pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, geriatrics, and other electives. Residents will develop skills that will equip them to be competent family medicine physicians.

The ACGME enforces clinical and educational work hours that do not exceed 80 hours per week averaged over a four-week period, inclusive of all in house clinical and educational activities, clinical work done from home, and all moonlighting.  Residents must be scheduled for a minimum of one day in seven free of clinical work and required education (when averaged over four weeks). In order to help maintain patient safety and resident well-being, we strictly monitor that all residents in the program follow the clinical and educational work hours regulations.
