As you begin your family medicine residency, you may be wondering what the path from intern year to board exam looks like. We overview the family medicine residency pathway in this post.
Family Medicine Intern Year
The first half of your family medicine intern year will seem eerily similar to med school—like drinking from a fire hose. Absorb as much as you can, and learn from your upper levels to build a foundation to lean on for the remainder of residency.
Boards are far away at this point, and you’ll want to focus on thriving as a resident. Most family medicine residencies have an ITE (in-training exam) in October, but don’t sweat this one because its purpose is to gauge your knowledge thus far.
