We schedule interviews beginning in October and continuing through January.  We have 2 interview groups (AM & PM) each day that we interview.  If you selected the AM group, your day will begin at 8:15 am with interviews, discussion about Research Family Medicine Residency, Benefits, and other interesting points about our program, a hospital tour, lunch, and clinic tour will round out your day by 2:00 pm.  If you selected the PM group, your day with us will begin at 10:15 am where you will join the AM group for the discussion about Research Family Medicine Residency, Benefits, and other interesting points about our program, a hospital tour, lunch, clinic tour, and 3 interviews will round out your day by 3:30 pm. You will have time for informal discussions with our residents/staff during your tour of the hospital, clinic and residency offices.

 

We encourage you (and your guest) to partake of a fine restaurant dinner with residents on the night before your interview or at the conclusion of your interview day.  Those arrangements will be discussed with you when making your interview appointment.

   

Starting residency training can be quite stressful so we have developed a rotation for our new residents that is aimed at reducing the stress. New residents are expected to report for our Three Day Orientation during the last week of June in preparation for “Introduction to Family Medicine”, that begins July 1st as your first full Block of residency. During this time, new residents will get to know each other, our teaching physicians and staff as well as achieve certain competencies and certification courses while experiencing residency both in the hospital and clinic settings..
