Urban Structure

OBJECTIVE

It is the responsibility of all residents to review the curriculum objectives before and throughout a rotation. Residents should reflect on these as they relate to personal learning needs, in this way, maximizing learning opportunities. We also ask that preceptors be aware of the curriculum objective, and be able to discuss with their residents how best everyone benefits from any particular rotation or experience. Curriculum objectives are available in the one45 evaluation system.
