Medical Student Rotation Opportunities | Salary & Benefits

A large part of the inpatient training occurs on our busy family medicine inpatient service which provides true "womb to tomb" care.  We care for patients admitted from our Cabarrus Family Medicine offices.  Hospital attendings include a mix of family medicine hospitalists and full scope family medicine attendings from the residency offices who rotate by week.  
  • As a 1st year resident, start with 4 patients and increase to 6-8 patients, by year end.
  • As a 2nd year resident, you will gradually receive more responsibility with 8-10 patients.
  • 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. The 3rd year resident is also the primary resident responsible for teaching and supervising acting interns.

Night work will consist of two, two week night float rotations.  On night float there are two residents and one attending on call.  There is also scattered weekend night float coverage throughout the academic year.  Our faculty stay in-house on call providing appropriate balance between resident independence and oversight.

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

We have a number of unique "internal referral clinics" within our family medicine centers to provide additional training opportunities, including:  travel, dermatology, gynecology and colposcopy clinics.  Residents also work with our local health department for additional pediatric and obstetrics experience as well as procedural opportunities placing long-acting contraceptive devices.
