Our residency program offers a balance of ambulatory and hospital training. In each of the three years of residency, we offer 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 to hear more about our program’s strengths.
Our primary training site is the CommUnityCare Blackstock Family Health Center, a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) 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. We provide 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 our program practice in a variety of settings including public health/FQHC clinics, urban or rural practice, private practice, academics, rural practice, urgent care/emergent care facilities and hospital-based/hospitalist practice. Some of our graduates seek additional fellowship training and have successfully completed fellowships in academic medicine, adolescent medicine, geriatrics, obstetrics, palliative care, primary care dermatology, public health, sports medicine and women’s reproductive health.
The Family Medicine Residency program is affiliated with the Department of Population Health.
