Curriculum

Block rotation

Our Family Medicine Residency program is 36 months and follows a block rotation schedule, designed to comply with all ACGME Family Medicine Review Committee requirements.

Each year has 13 four-week blocks of “traditional” rotations, with longitudinal experiences throughout the training in Health Systems Management/Q1 (3 years), Behavioral Health (3 years) and Geriatrics (2 years). Our residency clinic also is part of the longitudinal experience that crosses all three years of training.

All residents are expected to complete each rotation as scheduled. Rotation information is available on New Innovations. Goals and Objectives for each rotation will be sent via New Innovations to all residents two weeks prior to the start of each rotation.
