The internship year provides you with a foundation of knowledge and practical experience. This is accomplished by making you the primary physician in many care settings, by establishing basic skills and refining them with practice and feedback.
The PGY 2 year is the year you consolidate your skills. You will continue to develop your knowledge base in both the diversity and depth of information related to clinical care. You will develop your clinical skills in higher acuity areas including the Inpatient Floor, Intensive Care Units and in the Emergency Department.
PGY 3 residents are expected to take a leadership role in the teaching and management of the health care team on the inpatient wards and intensive care units, as well as in the primary care ambulatory and emergency room settings. The PL-3s should be active participants and leaders in conferences and ambulatory settings.
