Curriculum & Rotations

Curriculum & Rotations

Trainees in the PGY1 and PGY2 years complete most of the acute care requirements before proceeding to the more ambulatory and elective PGY3 and PGY4 years. 

Elective opportunities available in the PGY3 and PGY4 years range from research electives to neuromodulation to psychotherapy practicums and experiences. Duke provides many opportunities for interdepartmental collaboration and committee participation for interested residents. 

Protected time for didactic learning takes place on Tuesday afternoons—i.e., Academic Half-Day—throughout the entire four years of training.
