The Medical Education Program at Redmond Regional Medical Center provides 3rd and 4th year medical students with didactic and clinical training in several areas of medicine. The program was developed to provide robust educational experience in a clinical environment as a means to teach and role-model high acumen in all six areas of competency. Students have daily direct supervision and work closely with attending faculty as well as exposure to innovative teaching models alongside Medical Residents in the care of patients. Both two- and four-week block rotations are available.
