Rural Family Medicine Residency Program Curriculum

Curriculum – General

Our curriculum meets all national accreditation standards and addresses our residents' particular needs. Each resident's learning is approached systematically to ensure that the resident is completely prepared for practice. Through specialized electives, residents can develop strengths and expand on their areas of clinical interest. Residents may tailor their curriculum to include specific areas of concentration such as obstetrics, sports medicine, geriatrics, and urgent care.

In addition, our curriculum places emphasis on teaching the fundamentals of rural family medicine including outpatient procedures. Resident education is tailored to prepare them for rural practice with an emphasis on community and relationship building, participation in Rural Trauma Team Development Course and option to become ATLS certified, emphasis on quality improvement, advocacy, addiction and chronic pain treatment, and focused training on point of care ultrasound and telehealth technology.
