Continuity Clinic

The heart of our curriculum is the Family Medicine Residency Center, where residents will practice four half-days per week all three years. Residents will learn how to care for patients of all ages, varying from wellness visits to management of complex medical conditions.

From Day 1, residents will integrate time in the clinic with mini-blocks and longitudinal rotations, giving variety to their days and simulating their future practice in a rural environment.
