The PGY-4 Year: An Overview
The PGY-4 year is dedicated to providing opportunities for residents to explore their particular areas of interest, and to prepare for the transition to independent practice. In addition to outpatient continuity clinic and 2 months of emergency psychiatry, this year consists of a flexible schedule to allow for elective rotations and research. Each resident will fulfill a specific chief responsibility during this year - a valuable experience in leadership and administrative skills.
PGY-4 residents attend full-day didactics each Wednesday.
Overnight call averages to about 1-3 calls through the year, and does not include weekends or holidays.
