Carolinas HealthCare System


The program's curriculum is designed to prepare residents to recognize, stabilize and effectively transfer patients with illnesses and trauma who need tertiary care; to work in an environment where there are few immediately available consultants; and to effectively work to deliver comprehensive primary healthcare in suburban and rural areas. Some significant features of the second and third year curriculum which deserve emphasis are:

  1. 12 month rotations each academic year
  2. One-on-one preceptor/resident relationships and teaching.
  3. Medical education in a small town environment.
  4. Opportunities to work with an underserved, multicultural population through the local health department.
  5. Continuity clinics in a private family practice clinic in an "apprenticeship" model.
  6. Common and shared teaching conferences with the main program.
  7. Emphasis on community health services to facilitate learning a team approach to care.
