  • General Practice Residency

    This program is designed to provide each resident exposure to a variety of comprehensive and episodic care encounters within the framework of a group practice situation. The emphasis is placed on comprehensive care. It is anticipated that the residents will avail themselves to the immediate access readily offered by the generalist and specialist faculty.

    Practice management techniques will be encouraged in this program. Each resident will actively participate in the management of their patients, the auxiliaries, and their laboratory interactions. Monthly reports based on production will be provided and evaluated by the faculty with the resident.

    The faculty monitors the progress of each of the residents through the approval of treatment plans, laboratory cases, record audits, and evaluation of monthly printouts showing quantity and types of procedures performed.

    The majority of dental care is rendered in the School of Dentistry Residency Clinic, Jackson Medical Mall Dental Clinic, or the Veteran's Administration Dental Clinic. Occasional emergent dental care is rendered in the University Hospital Emergency Room.

    The GPR resident will receive additional hospital exposure through participation in Anesthesiology, Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine, and Otolaryngology rotations in combination with an extensive outpatient operating room dental experience at University Hospital's surgical suites. These exposures should augment the resident's ability to interact with other health care professionals when coordinating patient care.
