A broad range of experiences
We offer many exciting rotations for residents, including inpatient pediatrics and pediatric emergency rotations at Children's Hospital, training at Hazelden drug rehabilitation center, and sports medicine sideline experience at the Twin Cities Marathon, MSHSL State Tournaments, USA Soccer Cup, Johnson High School and other events.
International and Global Health rotations have been popular, and we have multiple faculty members who have experience setting up experiences in international settings. We actively encourage residents to develop electives that focus on a particular area of interest.
Early in their training, residents gain important insight into ICU care through our Fundamentals for Critical Care Support course, and our residents work closely with the intensivists during call. Residents also receive Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics training in their third month of residency, to ensure understanding of the complexities specific to labor and delivery.
Our call is full spectrum, ensuring exposure to all aspects of family medicine throughout all three years of residency. Obstetric experience is longitudinal both in clinic and the hospital. When possible, residents deliver their own continuity patients.
Supportive collaborative environment
From administration to the medical staff, St. John’s is a supportive and collaborative learning environment. Everyone is available to teach, support, listen and lend a hand to our residents. The residency program has full time faculty dedicated to the residency inpatient service.
