Curriculum

Residency Program Clinical Rotations

Clinical rotations are scheduled in two-month blocks.
Our clinical curriculum is uniquely designed to provide a balanced inpatient and outpatient experience throughout the training program. This facilitates residents' development of specialized interests early on in their training and allows them to enhance their knowledge and skills in all areas throughout their training. There is one-on-one teaching with clinical faculty on all rotations combined with the junior and senior residents working together on many rotations.
