Family & 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 ten 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. Our programs newest accomplishement is the addition of a rural residency
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.
