PGY-3 Curriculum

PGY-3

During the PGY-3 year, residents spend time training in specific areas of neurology, including child neurology and neuromuscular diseases. Additionally, PGY-3 residents begin to transition to a supervisory role. For the first time, the PGY-3 is a leader, running the Grady consult service. Time management and organizational skills are quickly learned while running this busy team. The PGY-3 must not only run the team, but spend time teaching the PGY-2, rotating residents, and medical students on the service, which is a major responsibility and learning experience. Throughout the PGY-3 year, the resident continues his or her continuity clinic one half-day a week. Call responsibilities are solely at Grady during the PGY-3 year, including both night float and weekend coverage.
