Decatur Family Med Residents with model

Curriculum and sample schedules

Our curriculum is designed to enhance and develop the family physician’s skills in the management of acute and chronic diseases and to also become a leader in his/her community. The first year focuses on inpatient rotations, while the second year of residency concentrates on subspecialty training. During the third year, residents gain practical experience by rotating as Chief residents, while tailoring their experience with additional required rotations and electives.

Didactics are held at noon on Monday and Wednesday and all afternoon on Friday. These presentations are given by our faculty, residents and various sub-specialty preceptors in the community.  We utilize interactive and innovative ways of teaching, such as, simulation, small-group learning and problem-based cases.
