Family and Community Medicine
The Department of Family and Community Medicine is a fully accredited, community-based residency program in operation since 1984. The residency program consists of six positions annually with a goal of providing a vigorous training curriculum that will enable our graduates to practice in any geographical area with a special emphasis on under served locations.
During the past several years, the program has been redesigned to incorporate the New Model of practice from the Future of Family Medicine. In doing so, we recruited diverse faculty with strong backgrounds in education, performance improvement, practice management, procedures, research and rural medicine. In addition, we have added a Geriatric Fellowship, offering two spots annually, a Hospitalist Fellowship, offering two spots annually, and welcomed our inaugural class of third-year medical students to our campus in July 2009.
We are excited about the innovative direction of our department and we hope that you will take time to look at us in more detail whether you are looking for a family physician or considering a residency in Family Medicine.
