Curriculum

Supervised practice in our diverse array of settings and clinical experiences designed into our curriculum prepare residents for independent practice in any clinical setting. Our plan of clinical rotations is dynamic and has been designed to maximize residency education. Each year the faculty carefully evaluates our residents' rotation experiences and refines our curriculum based on the feedback of residents and faculty members’ assessment of the curriculum’s effectiveness in meeting educational goals.
