Curriculum

Along with the various program faculty who participate in resident education, we are very fortunate to have an  active group of community preceptors who provide teaching to our residents on several of the subspecialty rotations.

Our curriculum follows a 13 block rotation schedule with each block being 4 weeks in length with the exception of the Night Float blocks. In the second and third year, residents typically cover one weekend night with in house call every 6 weeks on average.
