Second & Third Years
After the first year, most training takes place in an ambulatory setting. Second and third year residents work one-on-one with various specialists in outpatient clinics for orthopedics, ENT, neurology, urology, opthamology, and dermatology. Elective time allows residents to pursue areas of personal interest, whether in Greenville or elsewhere.
Second- and third-year residents on the family medicine inpatient service participate as members of the care teams, as well as in a night float system. Residents on non-inpatient rotations also sign up for labor-and-delivery call, which can be taken from home on average two to three times per month.
Residents have opportunities to teach medical students in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings. They play a vital role in the clinical skills training of medical students during the first and second years, as well as during the third and fourth year clerkships.
