Board Review Course
The Department of Medicine puts great emphasis on preparing senior residents for the Internal Medicine Board Certification Examination. A board review course is conducted every year for approximately 7-8 months with 2-3 sessions per week. The board review covers all the specialties, and the MKSAP. The sessions are interactive and mandatory for all senior residents and optional for other residents.

The Department of Medicine allows moonlighting only at Providence Hospital in areas that promote the knowledge and the expertise of the senior residents. Residents are allowed to moonlight in their second and third year residency, only if they have independent medical licenses. Written permission to moonlight must be obtained in writing from the Program Director and is limited to 28 hours per month, as long as the total work hours per week does not exceed 80 hours.

Community Services
Residents are required to complete three months of community service in their second or third year of residency prior to their completion of residency. The community services are located in the offices of three teaching faculty in different communities. Each resident works in the office of the teaching faculty on a one-to-one supervisory capacity.
