Residents grow personally and professionally as faculty provide them ongoing feedback during rotations and meet with them for regular advising sessions. Close faculty-resident relationships develop and contribute to the congeniality that characterizes Capital Region family medicine.
One of the true strong points about training at Capital Region is the didactics. House staff is required to attend regularly scheduled didactics. These range from case-based presentations that facilitate enhanced learning about medical conditions to interactive lectures by faculty on current medical topics.
An unopposed residency
The residents at Capital Region are unopposed by any other training programs, which allows for the best possible educational experience. Central lines, lumbar punctures, endoscopic procedures and first assist in surgeries are just a few of the advantages. In addition, the size of the residency allows for close communication and teaching by the attending physicians.
Faculty and staff
CRMC family medicine faculty is a principle strength of our program. We have more than 40 full-time faculty members with expertise in multiple disciplines, including family medicine, sports medicine, internal medicine, psychiatry, OB-GYN, critical care, infectious disease and pediatrics. Residents benefit from their knowledge, skills and support.
Clinical faculty maintain their own practices and consider clinical teaching of residents an important and fulfilling part of academic life. They provide constructive feedback in a timely and nonthreatening manner. Close faculty-resident relationships often develop and continue even after residents complete their training here.
