  • If the resident’s research project warrants a longitudinal rotation and has progressed sufficiently, a longitudinal research rotation in NMM may be approved during PGY-4 and will be considered one of the 4 required NMM rotations for that year.

  • If the resident is doing a longitudinal research rotation in the final year, the balance of the 9 PGY-4 rotations will fulfill the FM residency requirements.

  • If the resident is not doing a longitudinal rotation in the final year, the balance of the 8 PGY-4 rotations will fulfill the FM residency requirements.
