Procedures and Rotations
The Resident will care for a progressively larger number of patients
throughout his/her three years as a Resident, developing effective practice skills to treat enough patients within an eight hour period to be successful in family practice. The resident will be prepared to set for certifying board exam. The family practice training site for longitudinal care will be the central focus of the ambulatory training. Family practice is a comprehensive specialty which encompasses the total healthcare of the individual and family. Physiological, emotional, cultural, economic, psychological, and environmental factors as they relate to the disease process are considered in family medicine. The core of the family practice curriculum is the longitudinal care or continuity care of the resident’s patients. The Resident has his/her own panel of patients for the continuity of care as set forth by the AOA. The rotations whether required, elective, or selective, are considered an essential part of residency training. The resident is to actively participate in the patient care and requirements of that service. OPP is considered integral to patient care and is emphasized in this program.
A rotating call schedule is utilized which includes the Family Practice and the Combined Family Practice/NMM Residents. The Resident is responsible for his/her call.
