The first year of residency emphasizes the inpatient experience. House call averages one in every four nights, with strict compliance with New York state work hour rules. Interns spend one to two half days per week, regardless of rotation, seeing their continuity patients in the Family Care Center. There is a wide variety of exposure, from obstetrics to pediatrics to surgery and anesthesia, during the first year.

As a second-year resident,a significant emphasis is placed on taking more clinical responsibilities and enhancing decision-making skills. There are three months of inpatient medicine where residents are the primary physicians for their patients. Each resident will manage his/her own inpatient service with supervision by an attending physician. This is a strong component of the residency. In addition, second-year residents spend two to three half days per week in the Family Care Center.

The third-year resident has a significant role in teaching and supervising junior residents. The PGY3 resident assumes direct responsibility for leading the Medicine Teaching Service and Family Medicine Inpatient Teaching Service. Office efficiency and management are also priorities, and all third-year residents attend weekly conferences to prepare for career placement and transition to life after residency. Office time increases to four half days per week; however, call is limited.
