PGY-4 Curriculum


The PGY-4 year is the most flexible of the 3 years of training, with five months of elective time to pursue academic or clinical interests. It's also a year of increased responsibility, with several rotations in which the PGY-4 functions as the senior resident in charge of a ward or consult service, preparing the resident to function as a junior attending. By the end of the year, PGY-4 residents are fully competent and capable of practicing independently.

Grady wards (12 weeks)
