During your second year of residency, you’ll build on clinical skills developed during the PGY-1 year and use electives to explore areas of interest.

Clinical Program

You’ll continue developing your clinical skills in the care of women and children with rotations in obstetrics/newborn training as well as ambulatory pediatrics and pediatric urgent care. Also, you’ll receive training in radiology.

You’ll spend 12 weeks on the family medicine inpatient service during your PGY-2 year.

You’ll gain more responsibility, too. This includes helping first-year residents with prerounds, assisting with admissions and acting as the chief resident as needed.

The time you train in your family medicine center will increase to two to three half-days per week, depending on your rotations.

We allocate 10 weeks of the PGY-2 year to electives. You can select from the broad range of electives we offer or work with a faculty adviser to tailor an elective that suits your interests.

As part of our research curriculum, you’ll embark on a year-long quality improvement project with fellow residents on your training track.

Didactic Program

  • Conferences and Seminars
    Our conferences and seminars encompass the full spectrum of family medicine topics so you can build a foundation for your practice, advance your skills and stay current on important trends.

Teaching Duties

On the family medicine inpatient service, you’ll teach medical students during prerounds and throughout the day. You’ll supervise them as they conduct patient exams and write progress notes.
