Through a combination of required and elective rotations, our residents gain a broad-based education in all medical specialty areas. There are 13 four-week blocks each year. Inpatient training is provided at UP Health System – Marquette and our residents complete outpatient rotations at the Peninsula Medical Center with community physicians. Our PY-2 residents do a one-month rural rotation in one of our rural communities across the Upper Peninsula.
First-year residents start their training with a four-week Introduction to Residency. This rotation is designed with hands-on experiences to prepare new residents for the predictable, but critical, care situations they will soon face. Residents are guided to develop a relationship with health care team members and learn how the team most effectively works together to provide excellent patient care in the hospital and in the family medicine center.
Hands-on review of examinations skills, and coaching with hospital information systems all actively prepare residents for their new role.
At UP Health System – Marquette we are proud of our rural training. Over 90% of our graduates are practicing in rural areas. To improve resident rural experience, second-year residents do a one-month rural rotation in one of many rural communities.
