PGY-1 provides residents with an opportunity to solidify their core knowledge and skills in medicine and neurology while beginning their post-graduate education in psychiatry. Clinical sites provide comprehensive and continuous patient care experiences. Foundations for psychotherapy are laid and the practice of evidence-based medicine is encouraged. All clinical rotations in PGY-1 are based in Greenville, either at Vidant Medical Center, Brody School of Medicine at ECU Clinics or affiliated programs.
Teaching in PGY-1 occurs at the bedside, in the conference room and in the lecture hall. All residents attend Grand Rounds weekly, Journal Club monthly and service specific seminars as scheduled. One afternoon a week is dedicated to the core didactic curriculum and is taught by a variety of faculty members.
