Where are all the locations/hospitals the residents rotate at?
Amy Howard, PGY3
58:15
Research projects are started for everyone during intern year and developed throughout the 4 years. These can be projects passed down or quality improvement or educational projects also.

Residents rotate at Kennestone hospital as the main hospital and rotate at Gyn/Onc at North Fulton hospital as well.

Hi K'ara, we're all expected to participate in a research project while here. Each resident works with a faculty member to come up with a project/continue a project and see it all the way to publication or presentation.

Our family planning is at Feminist in Atlanta. This year, interns rotated at Wellstar's Family Medicine clinic - about 10 minutes from the main hospital.
