Curriculum & Schedules - Crozer-Keystone Health System - PA

Curriculum & Call Schedule



During your first year you will work mainly at Crozer Chester Medical Center on various inpatient services including, cardiology, medicine, labor and delivery, and ICU. Throughout the year you will have anywhere from 1- 3 half days per week in the office seeing your own panel of patients.


During your second two years, you will transition from inpatient to outpatient medicine. You will spend at least 3-4 half days per week as a PGYII and 4-5 half days per week as a PGYIII seeing your own panel of patients in the office. The remainder of your time will be spent rotating through different specialty offices such as orthopedics, endocrinology, and cardiology. You will take call at Delaware County Memorial Hospital (DCMH). You will also be responsible for our own Center For Family Health inpatient service at DCMH for two months during PGYII and one month during PGYIII.

Throughout your residency you also will participate in different longitudinal learning experiences.

If you are very interested in women’s health/OBGYN, inpatient medicine, or the medically underserved community we also offer specialty “tracks.”
