Family Medicine Curriculum
The Residency curriculum is comprised of three core elements: rotations, Family Medicine clinics and the Family Medicine education series. Each residency year presents a variation on this scheme.
Beyond this core of training, this residency offers customized educational experiences to meet each resident’s learning needs and post-residency plans. These customized educational experiences include five months of elective rotations, individual projects in scholarship and quality improvement, teaching projects, instructional medicine and additional degree programs. The curriculum provides both the structure and flexibility to prepare residents to realize their own vision in Family Medicine.
Rotations in the Family Medicine curriculum are 2-4 weeks in duration. Most rotations take place on the University of Illinois medical campus. The residency also receives funding through the VA and the following rotations take place at the Jesse Brown Veteran’s Administration Medical Center (conveniently located across the street from the UIC west campus): Outpatient Surgery, Cardiology, Neurology, Medicine Intensive Care Unit, Dermatology, ENT and Ophthalmology. The residents also blend both UIC and VA for their Geriatrics and Behavioral Medicine rotations). Elective rotations may, with approval, take place at other settings, as chosen by individual residents.
