Mentorship and Teamwork

Classroom to Clinic – A culture of respect and support

Our curriculum follows the most innovative and effective practices for adult learning, allowing academic coursework to inform clinical experience and vice-versa. We stretch beyond the basics to help residents develop the critical thinking skills required for those health care professionals who will transform medicine in the coming decades.

Regular resident feedback sessions allow us to constantly evaluate and evolve the curriculum to meet our residents’ needs.

Mentors who make a difference

Role modeling and mentorship are at the heart of the residency experience at Christiana Care. Our unique combination of high patient volume and small program size gives residents a one-to-one relationship with their mentors. With a program built on the principle of teamwork, our residents form professional and personal relationships that last a lifetime.

A Framework for Professional Growth

Christiana Care residents benefit from regular, consistent and constructive feedback designed to help each physician achieve excellence. The feedback occurs informally on a daily basis and more formally on a monthly basis from upper-year residents and attendings. Residents also have 24/7 access to the online evaluation system, giving real-time access to the latest feedback for professional growth.
