Family Medicine Athens Residency Curriculum

Our residents participate in 13 four-week rotations each year. Except when noted, the rotation will be in Athens, Texas. Since Family Physicians are generalists and rarely, after graduation, see three patients in a row with the same clinical problem and rarely will the patient just have one problem, the resident curriculum will reflect the real world and several of the rotations are combined experiences.
