Supportive mentorship & orientation programs

  • Each intern is paired with a faculty advisor/mentor and meets at least twice per year for residency development and guidance.

 

  • Interns are also paired with PGY2s for a smoother transition into intern year.

  • Our 2-week orientation prepares our new interns for their first year including resident and faculty mentorship and training for our family medicine clinic, fetal heart monitoring course, OB simulation lab course, and thorough review and tour of our intern inpatient rotations. This lessens first rotation anxiety!

  • A one-week intensive Spanish or Creole course is offered through our GME office as part of orientation.
