Academic Pathways

For residents in all medicine training programs, several academic pathways are available for academic and clinical skill development. While all residents are exposed to topics from each of these pathways in the general curriculum, residents in the second and/or third year can electively participate in one or more of these 1-2 year certificate programs.  All of the programs are specifically designed for busy residents with evening classes, team-based projects and clear goals and objectives. Learn more about the pathways below.
