Resident with child

All first year residents begin with a two week long orientation at end of June. The residents then spend two months on general internal medicine, two months on pediatrics, two months on obstetrics, one month in the MICU, two months in the emergency department, one month newborn nursery and one month of inpatient family medicine.

In October of intern year the entire intern class is together for Ambulatory Skills I, an outpatient family medicine rotation free of weekend responsibilities.

During this year, the resident acquires families for whose care he or she will be responsible during the remainder of training. The resident spends one half-day per week in the Family Medicine Center. The emergency medicine rotation involves approximately 20 shifts during the month.
