What to Expect
A resident at the St. Elizabeth’s Youngstown General Practice Residency can expect to develop their skills both clinically and interpersonally by working with a diverse patient population. Through a rigorous curriculum, residents are encouraged to go beyond their comfort zone to expand their clinical skills in an array of advanced dental procedures.
Differing interests and skills of our attendings expand the scope of treatment planning to address patients’ needs and give residents a more multifactorial approach. Residents can expect to attend several different rotations in other disciplines of healthcare to become more well-rounded practitioners, thus better understanding the role of dental care in overall systemic health.
The needs of our patient population are extensive, and therefore residents can expect to gain experience treating medically compromised patients with a variety of dental needs including prosthodontics, oral surgery, endodontics and more. Taking call will introduce you to triaging and treating patients with orofacial trauma and acute dental infections. Finally, all residents are expected to participate in research at some level.
Night call for trauma and dental emergencies are usually every sixth night. This includes emergency room experience and responsibilities, together with emergency and oral surgery, and hospital administrations.
