The residency program has had an affiliation with MBMC since the beginning of the department/program in 1973. The program operates an inpatient service of continuity and unreferred ED patients. Though there is no cap, the goal of the service is to maintain a service of 15 patients minimum to accommodate the RRC-FM requirements for residency training. All faculty have privileges at MBMC.
