The residency program is organized as a progressive educational experience with increasing patient responsibilities over the three years of training as residents develop clinical skills and demonstrate medical judgment and competence. The training program consists of formal teaching and clinical experiences on assigned rotations, patient care in the Family Medicine Clinic, and structured conferences. Our community has diverse medical resources available for educational use by the residents. The residency asks the residents to take responsibility for their learning environment and to work with the faculty in making their experience the best possible.
