  • Endocrinology
  • Dermatology
  • Men’s Health
  • Women’s Health
  • Nephrology

During the ambulatory academic half-day, there are also several seminars that expose our residents to important concepts in professionalism, doctor-patient communication, health care systems, risk management, and pharmaceutical industry relations.
