Rotations

Anesthesia

GPR residents participate in a two week anesthesia rotation at the University of Louisville Hospital and are under the supervision of the Department of Anesthesiology. Residents get experience in establishing IV access, intubation, selection and administration of drugs, pre-operative patient assessment and post-operative managment. They also gain experience in the prevention and treatment of anesthetic emergencies.

Medicine

Each resident is assigned exclusively to the Department of Family of Geriatric Medicine for a one-week rotation. Residents will be under the direct supervision of a PGY-2 Fmaily Medicine resident (Night Float). Rotations are scheduled from 6:00 pm Sunday to 6:00 am Saturday for a total of 72 hours.

Oral and Maxillofacial  Surgery

The GPR resident is on the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery service for approximately eight weeks throughout the year. Residents are involved in evaluating and diagnosing acute or chronic dental pathology, understanding the principles and techniques of dentoalveolar surgery and are able to manage complications. Residents perform simple and surgical extractions of erupted teeth, impacted third molars, pre-prosthetic surgery and soft tissue biopsies. Residents also go to the operating room to observe a wide variety of OMFS cases. The Chief resident (OMFS) is responsible for the resident's schedule while on the OMFS service.

Ryan White Community Service

The Ryan White Community based Dental Partnership Grant is part of a federal program to provide access to healthcare for people with HIV/AIDS. The Residents increase their knowledge of how HIV infection affects oral health and are able to manage the oral complications.
