Program Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to develop the family physician's skills as leader and community servant, as well as those in acute and chronic disease management.

Intern year is concentrated on inpatient rotations and the following years are more focused on outpatient medicine. The curriculum is formally evaluated by residents and faculty each year allowing for continued improvement of our residents' educational experience.

Didactics are held every Wednesday afternoon and are presented by our own faculty, residents and sub-specialty colleagues. We expect our graduates to be leaders in the communities in which they practice and at the forefront of family medicine.
