Curriculum by PGY Level

NHDFMR Curriculum

Dr. Mikail works with an interpreter to better serve a patient.

As a NH Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency (NHDFMR) resident you'll learn from a curriculum designed to build upon the clinical focus of medical school and foster the transition to graduate medical education. The curriculum progresses from mainly inpatient experiences in PGY1 to a mix of inpatient and ambulatory rotations in PGY2 and culminates in a primarily ambulatory experience in PGY3, allowing for you to focus electives around possible career options later in training. The curriculum is designed to develop clinically excellent physicians who model a team-based approach to care and complexity. Special emphasis is placed upon personal development and leadership through a unique three-year, longitudinal curriculum that builds skills transferrable to patient care, team dynamics and healthcare delivery models.

Osteopathy at New Hampshire Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency

The NH Dartmouth Family Medicine Residency (NHDFMR) program has been training osteopathic residents in Family Medicine since the program began in 1995. Doctor of Osteopathy (DO) residents provide osteopathic consultation to patients within the health centers via dedicated Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine consult clinics, as well as in their own continuity clinics. Consult clinics are precepted by a DO faculty member to work with residents in honing their Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) skills. NHDFMR sees this direct patient care learning as an important part of the Longitudinal Osteopathic Curriculum (LOC). The LOC includes OMT-specific workshops and lectures throughout the year.
