PGY2 Year

Group of ResidentsThe 3+1 scheduling format continues through all 3 years of training. During the second year of residency, all residents complete their ACGME-required rotation through the Emergency Department. Second year residents will also have the opportunity to choose 4-5 electives and have input into what inpatient rotations that would prefer to rotate through.

Upper level residents are expected to function as leaders of the care team. Second-years see all admissions to the team, participate significantly in inpatient clinical teaching for the interns and medical students, and serve as an advocate for patients’ longitudinal care. Residents frequently assume primary care responsibility for patients who lack an identified community physician, thereby optimizing the continuity of care experience. On inpatient and ambulatory subspecialty services, residents receive training from fellows and subspecialty attendings who serve as primary attendings rather than consultants as in many hospital systems. These interactions aid residents in clarifying direction for their future careers.
