All years with 4 weeks of vacation. Didactics for both psychiatry and family medicine are built into the rotation schedules.

In addition to the rotations above, combined residents also complete the same longitudinal curricular requirements as their colleagues in the categorical family medicine and psychiatry residencies. These longitudinal experiences include: psychotherapy, continuity maternity care, and sports medicine.
