As a major affiliate of the Northeast Ohio Medical University (NEOMED), our Family Medicine residency provides first-year experience on inpatient rotations of medicine, pediatrics, OB/GYN, surgery and emergency medicine, along with first-year pediatric experience at Akron Children's Hospital. The first year includes providing primary care to a panel of patients at Akron General's Center for Family Medicine.
The second year includes required rotations with the remaining times in subspecialties and electives. We also include a "hands-on" two-week Practice Management curriculum in the second year.
The third year provides experience in office and patient management at Akron General and Akron Children's Hospital. Third-year office practice includes management of 150-200 families.
Scheduled weekly are 1/2 day didactic conferences encompassing all medical topics, behavioral science, pharmacology, evidence-based medicine, research and practice management for all residents.
