Curriculum

 

Residents participate in a monthly meeting of the residents’ association and a monthly group meeting with the program director. These meetings provide a public platform for comments, concerns, and suggestions from everyone in the residency program.

Resident progress in training is evaluated every 6 months by the Clinical Competency Committee (CCC). Individual meetings with residents are held every 6 months to review progress and encourage professional development.
