Categorical Residents: 3 Years at a Glance

To ensure our residents are provided a quality outpatient education and continuity of care, we have incorporated an X+Y schedule system for each PGY-1 and PGY-2 class. Each PGY-1 and PGY-2 schedule alternates ward services with outpatient clinics or subspecialty consult services. While on the latter services, residents will attend two continuity half clinic days per week. While on ward services, no clinic will be scheduled.
