Residents are exposed to community events, i.e.

  • Sports physicals for local schools
  • Sideline sports on the football field
  • Educational opportunities with high school students

A small program offers residents flexibility with rotations where they have a special interest, and also takes into consideration management of important life and family events.

The most frequent procedures provided to patients in the family medicine clinic include chest x-rays, EKG interpretation, cerumen removal, joint injection/aspiration, lacerations, incision and draining of abscess, skin tag removal and nail removal. Opportunities for mentoring medical students and moonlighting also exist for qualified residents.

Key services include a very busy ER where we treat more than 45,000 emergencies each year; our Heart, Surgery, Rehabilitation, Orthopedics, Sleep and Birthing Centers with specialists trained specifically for these needs; and an extensive Mental Health program for senior adults and those suffering with memory loss. The latest addition to the hospital is a Wound Care Center with a hyperbaric oxygen chamber.

Residents also gain exposure to the business aspects of medicine and gain insight into the business operations, from finance to human resources. This experience will provide useful whether residents enter a private outpatient practice, choose hospital medicine or some other employment model upon graduating.
