Our residents take a very active role in how the residency program functions. Residents have a strong and welcome voice in all decisions regarding changes in rotation structure and day-to-day activities. Our program leadership practices an open-door policy and we love impromptu meetings with our residents! 

Residency Advisory Council (RAC)

This peer elected council is made up of representatives from each residency class as well as from our medicine-pediatrics program.  Elected members meet with Dr. Lane on a monthly basis to discuss and develop action plans to address important issues identified by the residents, with a focus on the educational environment and resident well-being.  Our 4+1 schedule, and the IMAN and Early and Late admitter rotations are examples of highly successful resident-led initiatives.  Resident feedback is a major driver of innovation in our program.

Resident Townhall Meetings

Dr. Lane and the Chief Residents conduct periodic townhall meetings in the format of a Q and A. This is an open and informal forum for discussion of issues that residents may want to bring up. These meetings are also held to discuss any proposed program changes.
