*One elective in the PGY-3 year may be used as an out-of-town experience.
Note: All PGY-2 and 3 experiences are community/private practice unless specified.
Second- and third-year residents provide continuity of care to patients at a nursing home in the Jackson area. Residents make monthly teaching and patient care rounds with program faculty.
Core curriculum conferences are presented every Wednesday morning. These include a variety of lecture, discussion, and workshop formats. Residents are involved in presenting journal club, case presentations and senior conferences.
Procedure workshops are held throughout the residency. These include workshops on flexible sigmoidoscopy, colposcopy, fine needle aspiration of masses, joint injections and splinting and casting. Experience in colonoscopy, esophagogastroduodenoscopy, exercise treadmill testing and operative obstetrics are offered electively.
Our program serves as primary physicians for students at both the MS School for the Blind and Deaf and Millsaps College, both located close to the University of Mississippi Medical Center campus. Residents attend to students' needs at on-site medical clinics on a rotational basis. Students from any school requiring more extensive care are seen in our residency clinics.
There are facilitated support groups that meet monthly for all residents.
Our program is committed to providing a reasonable workload for all residents - one that allows time with family and for outside hobbies. All schedules abide by the ACGME duty hours.
