Curriculum

and

Block Schedule

First Year Curriculum

Our first year residents spend the majority of their first block together, being immersed in the foundations of family medicine during the Intro to Family Medicine block, then gain experience rotating through different services in the hospital and community. We believe that great outpatient doctors are created in the family practice setting, and this begins in the PGY 1 year. First year residents are scheduled to see at least one patient each day in our Family Medicine Center on every rotation except for inpatient pediatrics.* Weekly didactics also bring the group together.

*PGY 1 residents will see patients once weekly during the 4 week Pediatric Inpatient Medicine rotation.

Additional Highlights:

  • No dedicated ICU rotation = more time spent in the outpatient setting (you will still manage critically ill patients)

  • No night float or night call (with the exception of rotations at Nationwide Children’s Hospital)

  • No inpatient surgery - this will be an outpatient focused rotation

  • Intro to Family Medicine - 4 weeks

  • Adult Emergency Care - 4 weeks

Second Year Curriculum

Our second year residents build upon their knowledge and experience through additional specialty rotations while increasing their daily continuity patient visits. They also serve as supervisory residents during the inpatient medicine months. The two months of elective time provide the opportunity to explore areas of interest.

Additional Highlights:

  • No night float or inpatient call - our PGY2 and PGY3 residents take home call for our outpatient practice. They do not get called into the hospital for admissions or cover any inpatients when on call.
