It is our vision to be a Family Medicine Residency Program that prepares and equips our graduates to practice Family Medicine in the 21st century. Graduates will be trained and have demonstrated the ability to:
- Offer companionate, comprehensive, and evidence-based effective clinical care to patients and their families
- Provide culturally competent, relationship and patient centered, team model of delivery care to patients and their families
- Develop clinical questions, utilize QI data, critically access medical literature, and perform self assessment in order to improve and maintain competence
We emphasize physician versatility and responsiveness, particularly in light of the ever-changing needs of patients and their families. Whether you picture yourself in group practice, managed care, rural health or a continuing fellowship, the Family Medicine Residency offers an outstanding educational opportunity to help you reach your goal.
