We believe that resident input is integral to the development of a successful residency program and thus, you will have the opportunity to help direct your learning experiences.
In your second and third years, you will have longitudinal experiences to help prepare you for rural family practice by providing continuity for your patients in clinic, during hospitalizations, and for deliveries and postpartum care.
