Learning Experiences

Our flexible residency program allows residents to tailor their experiences to meet their individual career goals. The residency year is divided into 12 rotations, most of which are one month long. Residents are also evaluated longitudinally on project, presentations, research, and practice experience (staffing).

Additional highlights include:

  • One month rotations can be made into blocks of multiple months
