The General Preventive Medicine Residency program aims to train leaders in preventive medicine who are able to successfully pursue any of its many career paths including academic medicine, applied public health from the local to national levels, occupational medicine, and/or consulting. This training is provided by an integrated curriculum of
- Academically rigorous course work leading to a Masters in Public Health degree;
- 6-8 practicum experiences over two years;
- The equivalent of at least 1 full day a week of clinical preventive medicine experiences on average.
- Informal curriculum such as preventive medicine journal club
There are no inpatient care requirements and therefore no overnight call. While there is absolutely no call responsibility at this point, we are hoping to set up a program where residents might be asked to work with the Monroe County Department of Public Health after hours at most once a week to assist with food poisoning and other potential disease outbreak investigations. Residents would only be asked to work up until 9 p.m. if this does occur.
