  • Inpatient Medicine: 13 weeks, including

    • Night Float- Five weeks of graduated autonomy to the senior member of inpatient teams during overnight shift.

    • Critical Care- This two week rotation is an inpatient rotation that is supervised by board certified intensivists. Because Grant has an open ICU, the program has a great relationship with intensivists. In addition to this two week rotation, we co-manage our SFM patients who require intensive care in the unit. This rotation consists of daily rounds with multi-disciplinary critical care team and numerous procedural opportunities.

  • Pediatrics: 10 weeks, including

    • Outpatient (4 weeks)- Dedicated outpatient experience (well children, acute visits, behavioral management cases) in general pediatric clinics associated with Nationwide Children’s Hospital.

    • Newborn (2 weeks)- Occurs in the newborn nursery at OhioHealth Grant Medical Center and provides opportunities for delivery room resuscitations, NICU experience, and circumcisions/procedures.

    • Pediatric Emergency (4 weeks)- Occurs at Nationwide Children’s Hospital Level 1 trauma center, which is one of the nation’s busiest pediatric emergency facilities.

  • Obstetrics/Repro: 4-6 weeks- You will serve as the supervisory resident on the OB/GYN team, while having the opportunity to participate in management of both routine and high-risk OB care. Some of these weeks will be primarily outpatient-focused, spending time rotating on our Mobile OB unit, FMOB clinic, or Grant OB clinic.

  • Specialty Care: 11 weeks, including

    • Sports Medicine (4 weeks)- Sports medicine, physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R) in rehabilitation/orthopedic office settings for both pediatric and adult patients. Additional opportunity to serve as a team physician.

    • Geriatrics (4 weeks) - You will consult on a geriatric service while working with staff geriatricians, as well as geriatric and hospital medicine fellows. Additional exposure includes skilled and long-term care nursing home patients, hospice, and patients that need rehabilitation before transition to their home.

    • Palliative (2 weeks) - Residents round with palliative care team, attending teaching sessions and patient care visits under supervision of inpatient hospice team. A large portion the resident's time will be spent at Kobacker House, an inpatient hospice facility.

    • Neurology (1 week)- Residents spend a week of mornings on the inpatient Neurology consult service, caring for patients with the Stroke Team and managing urgent and emergent neurologic conditions.

  • Emergency Care (2 weeks) - While working directly with Emergency Medicine attendings through a shift rotation format, you will be exposed to ample opportunities for procedures and high volume trauma at our Level 1 center.

  • Leadership (2 weeks): Build skills required for physicians outside of the patient room, including research, billing, instructing junior learners, and career planning.

  • Electives: 4 weeks

  • Longitudinal Curriculum- PGY2s are seeing their own patients at their Family Medicine Center on average three half-days per week. Our longitudinal Population Health curriculum is integrated into all our rotations throughout the three years. Our residents learn how to conduct community assessments and care for their patients beyond their care in the office.
