    In addition to the rotations, residents provide comprehensive care for their panel of patients in the Family Health Center. First year residents have one to two half days in the office per week; second year residents have two to four half days in the office per week; and third year residents have three to four half days in the office per week. Also in the third year there is an additional half day in a private family medicine physician's office. This physician is selected by the resident. This experience allows the resident to function as a colleague in a medical practice.

    bullet point  Conferences and Didactics
     
     
    Teaching in both formal and informal settings is a daily part of life in our residency program. Rotations in inpatient medicine, night float, obstetrics, and pediatrics among others have scheduled curricular topics presented in small group lectures or round table discussion formats during the course of the rotations.
    During the week, noon lectures at UPMC McKeesport Hospital are presented by our colleagues in the internal medicine department covering Grand Rounds, Journal Club, Case Presentations, and sub-specialty teaching sessions and are open to all family medicine residents.
    On Wednesday afternoons, all of the family medicine residents come to the health center for our 4 hour core conference series. Conference formats include workshops, lectures, and teleconferences. Lectures are presented by family medicine attendings as well as specialists covering an 18 month curriculum of medicine, pediatrics, sports medicine, psychiatry, and obstetrics/gynecology topics. Resident presentations include journal club and case conferences. Workshops include hands- on programs in office-based procedures, circumcision, casting and splinting as well as practice-based improvement programs to improve our care of patients with diabetes and ischemic vascular disease.
