  • Provide a well-rounded curriculum that prepare residents for the next phase of their career, regardless of whether the resident is matched or unmatched into an advanced standing program
  • Utilize timely feedback and mentorship opportunities to guide residents’ study habits, integration of feedback into practice, and determine optimal elective rotations
  • Maintain a culture of inclusion within our participating training sites and our program faculty that provides residents with a safe, education-focused learning environment in which to flourish
  • Provide faculty development that aligns with these aims and the mission of our program.
