* All residents must have successfully completed COMLEX Part III, have obtained a state medical license and DEA number, and have completed the first draft of their scholarly activity in order to be advanced to PGY 3.

In addition to scheduled rotations, residents will be required to complete a continuity care experience at the Family Medicine clinic. Residents are expected to build a panel of patients to follow through their training. A minimum of 150 patients visits must occur during the PGY 1 year, with a total of at least 1,650 patient visits over the course of the residency. Residents must see the patients in the continuity of care clinic site for a minimum of 40 weeks per year.

Residents must receive at least 100 hours of training in the care of the geriatric patient in addition to the training that occurs in the continuity care clinic or general internal medicine rotations. This will occur in the Nursing Home setting.
