Vineland Family Medicine Residency Curriculum
The Family Medicine Residency offers a robust curriculum and access to experienced, supportive faculty in convenient locations throughout South Jersey. Each specialty program includes weekly didactics, attending and guest lecturers, clinical experiences and sessions in our procedure labs and simulation center.
We have a robust osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM) curriculum, led by numerous osteopathically trained physicians, where residents perform techniques in our clinic, attend national conferences such as the Osteopathic Medical Education Conference (OMED) and partake in didactic lectures that incorporate resources from the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP).
Our program offers several career tracks based on resident interests and preferences, including sports medicine, inpatient care and other specialty areas. Our goal is to provide our residents with an excellent foundation from which they will build the necessary skills to become compassionate, effective and well-rounded family medicine physicians.
Rotations in Clinical Practice
We understand that family medicine is a broad specialization. Our flexible curriculum allows plenty of elective time to explore areas of interest, whether that is inpatient, outpatient or a combination of the two. Rotations focus on developing a foundation for family practice.
Your first year will allow you to develop a comprehensive understanding of inpatient care, which will become the foundation of the rest of your program. Your second and third years will focus on outpatient rotations, including cardiology, pulmonology, nephrology, dermatology, general family medicine clinic and more. You will also be able to hone your practical skills, including injections, ultrasound-guided procedures, osteopathic manipulative medicine, inpatient procedures such as thoracentesis and paracentesis and more.
We take pride in serving the Cumberland County community with free health clinics, patient education experiences and more. Our residency is unique in that our outpatient clinic is fully longitudinal and continuity-based, so you can expect to build your own patient panel; manage the nuts and bolts of clinical practice, including following up on and reviewing lab work and imaging telemedicine; and expand your practical skills with procedures, ultrasound and osteopathic manipulative medicine if you choose.
Our residents receive training in point-of-care ultrasound (POCUS), and we have multiple ultrasound probes used at our hospital and clinic. Residents attend graduate medical education conferences to reinforce learning, allowing them to expand diagnoses and conduct ultrasound-guided injections and other procedures.
Residents have the opportunity to participate in several committees and Inspira-wide initiatives, including Osteopathic Medicine Committee, Medication Reconciliation Committee, Ultrasound Committee, GME/CME Grand Rounds Committee, and Family Medicine Committee.
