Warwick residents staff their own family medicine MCH service at Kent Hospital, supervised by Family Medicine attendings and private OB/GYNs. This service is unopposed. As a part of the family medicine MCH service, we manage the OB care for our Thundermist patients and the patients of private OB/GYNs. We also manage the care of newborns who will receive their pediatric care at Thundermist. Typically, one resident is on service at a time. Interns spend 2 months on the MCH service and second years spend 1 month. Residents interested in including MCH into their future career, including pursuing an OB fellowship, will spend additional time on the MCH service as part of the MCH track.
