  • Off-Services Clinical Rotations

    Anesthesia rotation

    Each GPR resident will rotate through the UMMC anesthesia rotation for four weeks. During these morning sessions, the resident will report directly to the anesthesiology staff for assignments. The resident will learn and perform the following: intubation techniques, IV canulation, exposure to differing anesthesia techniques, and involvement in active patient management in the operating room. In the afternoons, the resident will report to their assigned dental rotation for comprehensive patient care.

    Family medicine rotation

    The two-week GPR rotation will be divided into three locations while the resident is under the direct supervision of the UMMC Department of Family Medicine. The GPR resident will be expected to follow instructions of the point of contact and rotate through various hospital and outpatient locations. During this rotation, the GPR resident will learn to complete a medical history and physical examination, interpret common lab studies, and understand medical risk assessment.

    Emergency medicine rotation

    This rotation is based in the University Hospital emergency room under the direction of Department of Emergency Medicine faculty. Upon completion of this two-week rotation, a resident should be able to anticipate and intervene in a systematic emergent event.  Also, a resident should have the ability to treat or refer appropriately emergencies related to the maxillofacial region. Participation in this rotation requires the resident to work shifts outside the normal 8 a.m.-5 p.m. workday.
