First-Year Rotations

A three week Practice Management/Community Medicine rotation orients new residents so they can become familiar with one another, faculty and staff, their professional setting and systems, and community resources. At this time, residents begin seeing patients.

During the first year, residents see their own patients two half-days per week in the outpatient family medicine center. During Teaching Service (inpatient medicine) blocks, they cover call from 6:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, plus call in the hospital from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Saturdays or Sundays.

Second-Year Rotations

The second year offers a more intensive inpatient experience at Wausau’s ICU.

Residents assure continuity of care for their patients with three half-days of clinic per week. Teaching Service call is two weeks per block from 6:00 pm to 6:00 a.m. Call coverage while on the ICU rotation is Q4. 10-12 days of “pick up” call on weekends are also scheduled throughout the year.
