    First Year Family Medicine Resident (PGY-1) 


    The first year of family medicine training will give you a balanced experience in family medicine. You will be expected to average 2 half days of clinic per week. Inpatient rotations are focused on pediatrics (both inpatient and outpatient), labor and delivery and nursery. You will also have more inpatient medicine months on our family medicine service, where you will have close supervision from a 3rd year resident staffed by dedicated attendings. Emphasis is placed on acquisition of diagnostic and management skills to prepare you for the next, more independent, years of residency.

    Additional elective time is available, allowing PG-2s to pursue areas of special interest as you will begin the early stage of career planning.

    The third year of residency will offer you supervisory experience on the inpatient service and in the emergency department. As a third year resident, you will be expected to assume some responsibility for the education of the first year residents and medical students. You will also be expected to contribute to the hospital’s Grand Rounds, acting as both speaker and coordinator at times. You will also lead through quality improvement within both the residency and hospital.

    PG-3s also have the opportunity to select elective time based on individual needs and interests. Electives can be arranged within a department and with selected community physicians. Lastly, you will finalize your plans for beginning your family medicine career.
