Didactics

Every Wednesday from 1:30 p.m.-5:30 p.m., Georgia South has weekly didactic sessions. These sessions include core lectures, which cover topics pertinent to the foundation of Family Medicine Curriculum and prepare our residents for their boards. Core lectures are repeated annually to allow residents to review core topics and concepts multiple times throughout their three years of residency training. In addition to core lectures, didactic sessions include journal clubs, patient safety and case reviews, resident-led lectures, board review, review of certifications, and practice management meetings.

Scholarly Activity

Our residents participate in many different scholarly activity projects including Quality Improvement projects and Op-Eds published in the local Moultrie observer. In PGY-1 and PGY-3 residents participate in a required scholarly activity rotation where they work one-on-one with their advisor to plan out their future projects.
