Our program is in full compliance with the criteria dictated by the ACGME. It is broken down into thirteen, four-week blocks.
Though the number of clinic days varies per rotation, generally PGY1 will have one clinic half-day per week, PGY2 has two clinic half-days per week, and PGY3 has three clinic half-days per week.
Typically we have residents select a two-week vacation block prior to the beginning of the academic year, and the rest of the vacation is selected by the resident as the year goes by.

Learn to Lead, Leader to Learner Program (LTL2)
The ability to lead effectively is a crucial aspect of residents’ success during training and when they eventually go out to practice in the community. We have designed a special program for our third-year residents called the “Learn to Lead: Leader to Learner Program (LTL2).”
This leadership program truly distinguishes the OPMC Family Medicine residency from all others. Developed in accordance with the American Academy of Family Physicians curriculum guidelines on Leadership, LTL2 is an innovative process of creating a generation of family medicine physicians to take a leadership role in advanced primary care practices and evolving health care systems.
The feedback from our residents thus far has been overwhelmingly positive in terms of its impact on gaining a better understanding of how each of the physician leaders’ roles applies to the larger context and system of health care, seeing how this system ultimately strives to improve patient care, learning what it takes to become a strong leader.
