Curriculum and Rotation Schedule

Our program uses a “4+1” block schedule. The schedule is organized into ten 5-week blocks consisting of four weeks of a core residency rotation followed by one week of resident continuity clinic. The block schedule minimizes interruption on both rotations and continuity clinic, and allows residents to focus on the service they are on.
