Unique Residency Features

There is no stipend or benefits associated with the residency program. The part-time schedule is designed to allow a resident to take a part-time job during the times/days when residency activities are not occurring. Getting a part-time job is not a requirement for participation in the residency, making it an attractive option for residents with other responsibilities which put demands on their time (ex. caregiving, parenting). Others may want to complete a residency at a slower pace. Residents receive professional development funds which they may use to travel to professional meetings in the second year of the residency. The resident will have the opportunity to become acquainted with both clinical and academic settings.
