Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to offer the resident a variety of experiences intended to prepare the EM resident for independent practice. Each rotation has been carefully selected to offer the maximal educational benefit and is evaluated on a regular basis. Since the educational needs are dynamic, we carefully evaluate our residents' rotation experiences and continuously modify the residency curriculum based upon their feedback.
