Teaching Skills Curriculum

In addition to a three-year, rolling curriculum, our program also offers a dedicated teaching rotation in the third year, as well as more advanced training.

Ultrasound Curriculum

Our longitudinal training in point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS) results in residency graduates with skills that would normally only be obtained in radiology or emergency medicine programs.

Quality & Safety Curriculum

Quality improvement benefits our patients and our systems, but it also provides our residents with an opportunity to lead a focused project often resulting in a publication or presentation at a regional or national society meeting. We have carved-out protected time for this work and our VA-funded Chief Resident for Quality & Safety is just one of the mentors guiding residents.


Through the department, we have been able to develop an app available for our residents called qUIkcoach. This is a new app that is able to request and provide just-in-time feedback on a variety of different skills including clinical reasoning, communication, oral presentation, and notes. This allows for more directed feedback with a quicker turnaround time.
