Medical Student Rotation Opportunities | Salary & Benefits

Our largest volume of inpatient training occurs on our family medicine inpatient service.

  • As a 1st year resident, you will be assigned 4 patients to start and increasing to 6-8 patients, by year end.
  • As a 2nd year resident, you will gradually receive more responsibility with a larger number of patients, 8-10, and "running the service" one afternoon per week when the 3rd year resident is in his/her family medicine practice.
  • As a 3rd year resident, you will truly run the service! You will be responsible for assigning patients to residents and faculty, triaging new admissions, and providing support for the first and second year residents. You will carry fewer patients (maximum 4) to allow for these supervisory duties. In addition, the resident running service is the primary resident teacher.

Night work will consist of two, two week night float rotations, on which there are two residents and one attending on call. When on call, our faculty stay in-house and encourage the residents to manage patients independently, with appropriate oversight. There is also scattered weekend night float coverage throughout the academic year.

Our outpatient training occurs primarily in a longitudinal fashion through your work in your Family Medicine Practice (FMP). You will see patients in your FMP, varying from 1-5 half days per week, depending on post graduate year and rotation. Typically, 1st years are assigned 1-2 half days per week, 2nd years are assigned 2-3 half days per week, and 3rd years are assigned 4-5 half days per week in his/her FMP.

In addition, as a part of your curriculum each year, you are assigned a one block rotation, concentrated in your Family Medicine Practice to ensure a strong patient base and outpatient medicine experience.
