Schedule

We changed our academic schedule from a 12 month calendar to 13 four-week blocks a year.  Fellows will have 3 weeks of vacation a year in addition to time approved for academic conferences.  Front loaded, the 3 year program allows for less inpatient service-based rotations,  and more outpatient clinic-based, research and elective rotations for senior fellows.  Fellows are also encouraged to arrange for away rotations based on their interests.
