  • A bimonthly primary care journal club



Optional Rotations
Residents may elect to participate in a variety of rotations, including:
  • East-West medicine
  • Weight management
  • Palliative care
  • Women's health
  • LGBT medicine
  • Population health research
  • Physical medicine and rehabilitation
Ambulatory Training

Over the course of the 3-year program, residents in the Primary Care Pathway spend an increased proportion of their time in the ambulatory clinics. Rotations in the ambulatory setting can occur at a variety of clinical sites and include rotations in nonmedical subspecialty areas that cover common outpatient conditions (e.g., women's health, dermatology, ENT, urgent care, LGBT medicine, sports medicine).
