The Family Medicine Residency offers a balance of ambulatory and hospital training. In each of the three years of residency, the program offers an ambulatory rotation and elective opportunities to allow residents to shape their own professional development and educational priorities. Read a welcome letter from residency director Dana Sprute, M.D., MPH, to hear more about the program’s strengths.
The program’s primary training site is the CommUnityCare Southeast Health and Wellness Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center ambulatory center. It is certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance as a Level 3 patient-centered medical home where faculty members and residents see patients side-by-side. The residency provides full-spectrum family medicine services including care for acute illness and injury, chronic disease management, women’s health, preventive care, ambulatory procedures, social work services, behavioral health, psychotherapy, nutrition education, telepsychiatry and pharmacy services.
Graduates of the program practice in a variety of settings including public health and FQHC clinics, urban or rural practice, private practice, academics, urgent care and emergency care facilities and hospital-based and hospitalist practice. Some graduates seek additional fellowship training and successfully complete fellowships in academic medicine, adolescent medicine, geriatrics, obstetrics, HIV medicine, palliative care, primary care dermatology, public health and sports medicine.
The Family Medicine Residency is affiliated with the Department of Population Health.
