Curriculum

Resident schedules include twelve rotations per year corresponding to the calendar months. The emphasis progresses from the inpatient to the outpatient setting. The RWJUH Somerset Family Medicine Residency Program fully supports the ACGME standards for clinical experience and education (formerly duty hours).

During office sessions, residents have the opportunity to perform many office-based procedures, including but not limited to IUD insertions, colposcopy, skin biopsies, endometrial biopsies, joint injections, and skin cryotherapy.
