Curriculum

The focus of the curriculum is to allow the graduate the potential to practice the full range of family medicine, including obstetrics should they so choose. This is accomplished through a variety of 4 week block rotations. Evaluation and feedback are given on a regular basis through a variety of means. The first year offers an emphasis on hospital care.
