A major innovation of our residency program is our ample elective rotation experience and flexibility in designing rotation electives. Residents receive 19 weeks throughout their residency to do elective rotations, one of the most liberal elective rotation policies in the country.
Residents are able to tailor their elective rotations to their post residency interests and goals all with faculty mentoring and support. While our residents may choose from a wide variety of existing electives in common areas (endocrinology, sports medicine, hospitalist care, hospice and palliative care, etc.), a number have created their own unique rotations! Our residents have participated in eye-opening clinical electives to other countries, they have explored indigent care through inner city street medicine, others have submersed themselves in intense research projects, while others have developed formal business plans for their future practices — each with guidance and support from well-qualified and experienced residency and community attending faculty.
