Job SummaryResident physician is responsible for developing the
skills, knowledge, and attitudes leading to proficiency in all the
domains of clinical competency. Resident physicians will assume
personal responsibility for the care of individual patients. The
essential learning activity is interaction with patients under the
guidance and supervision of faculty members who give value,
context, and meaning to those interactions. As residents gain
experience and demonstrate growth in their ability to care for
patients, they assume roles that permit them to exercise those
skills with greater independence. Individuals in the PGY-1 year are
closely supervised by senior level residents and faculty, whether
in the hospital or FMC. Supervision in the setting of graduate
medical education has the goals of assuring the provision of safe
and effective care to the individual patient; assuring each
resident's development of the skills, knowledge, and attitudes
required to enter the unsupervised practice of medicine; and
establishing a foundation for continued professional growth. Job
