Caseload: Learn by Doing

Hopkins residents are exposed to a wide variety of challenging cases during their training. As you may know, the ACGME requires each resident to do a certain number of each type of case before they may sit for the board exam. If you'd like to know the specifics about what the ACGME requires, click here to check out the requirements on the ACGME website. The pertinent information can be found on page 15 of the document.
