Subspecialties & Geriatrics
Surgical subspecialties include orthopedics, ENT, urology and ophthalmology. They are primarily office-based, and are focused on the aspects of these disciplines most appropriate for the practicing Family Physician.
Additionally, there are consultants available in the Family Medicine Center, for Family Medicine patients in the following specialties: GI, cardiology, nutrition, podiatry, OB, lactation, sports medicine, dermatology, and pulmonology.
There is a block rotation during the first year of residency based at a Geriatric Facility in the area. During the second and third years, residents follow a panel of patients in the nursing home, whom they see monthly. There are regular case conferences on these patients. Additionally, residents make visits to home-bound patients during the course of their residency.
