Family Medicine residents develop broad experiences in a variety of procedures. In addition to procedure training on rotations such as Surgery, Gynecology, Labor & Delivery, Dermatology, and Emergency Medicine, we have dedicated procedure training at our primary care clinic.
Outpatient Procedure Clinic – Half days at Erie clinic with Dr. Mustafa Alavi full of outpatient procedures – everything from biopsies to LARCs to vasectomies! Each resident does 3-5 of these over the course of their training. Many routine procedures can also be scheduled during our usual clinic time.
Musculoskeletal Clinic – Half days at Erie clinic with Dr. Priya Nagarajan specific to patients with musculoskeletal concerns – a great way to practice physical exams and joint injections! Each resident does 3-5 of these over the course of their training.
Additional Training – Residents interested in additional procedure-specific training can select electives or specialty tracks such as Women’s Health and Sports Medicine.
