Family Medicine Residency

General Program Information

  • The three-year Family Medicine Residency Program prepares our residents to care for a multicultural and diverse population.  According to a recent report, residents who train at Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) are more likely to stay in the communities where they train and practice. This puts doctors in medically underserved areas where they are needed most.  
  • The Community Health Patient-Centered Medical Home model facilitates interdisciplinary care.  Treatment is not only focused on a patient’s physical ailments.  It also takes into consideration other factors that may be of concern, such as mental health and addiction medicine.  This comprehensive approach to healthcare fosters nurturing that encourages residents to become more knowledgeable about patient care and develop a high level of sensitivity.  
  • Teaching faculty members are devoted to providing supervision, consultation, and support to ensure that patient care is managed effectively.  Residents receive varying levels of oversight depending on their medical knowledge, clinical and professional experience.  Residents participate in health tours, outreach, care of migrant and seasonal farm workers and the homeless.  They also provide care in our new mobile medical van.  
  • Program length is 36 months in accordance with ACGME and ABFM guidelines
