The curriculum is combined so that residents spend varying amounts of time per year in each discipline with longitudinal outpatient experiences that extend across all 5 years and represent family medicine primary care, psychiatric specialty care, as well as an integrated family medicine/psychiatry experience in a community health center. Formal teaching is provided in each discipline separately. We have found that the combined program enhances the residency training experience for those residents going through each categorical training program as well. Clinical rotations are generally in 4-week blocks in Primary Care so there are 13 blocks per year. In Psychiatry, with the exception of longitudinal ambulatory psychiatry, the Clinical Rotations are between 4 and 10 weeks and are integrated with the Primary Care experience.
