Similar to PGYII, during PGYIII appropriate balance is achieved between the overall inpatient and ambulatory experience, the time spent on ward versus intensive care rotation, general medicine and subspecialty education, and the emergency room and ambulatory clinic.
PGYIII incorporates expanded subspecialty elective opportunities with clinical experiences that call for independent clinical skill and judgment. Residents act as supervisory/teaching residents on the general medicine and oncology wards, and on the cardiology service.
There are no on-call responsibilities past 6 pm during 8 of 12 months of the year.
The PGYII and PGYIII ACRs add new themes in clinical epidemiology and ambulatory subspecialty medicine, and expand the themes of behavioral medicine and office clinical skills.
See PGYII and Ambulatory Care for more information.
Electives are offered in all medical subspecialties, as well as "non-medical" subspecialties. See Subspecialty Electives for more information.
PGYIIIs have the opportunity to take advantage of an intense training health rotation in Africa. See Global Health Training for more information.
