Family and Community Medicine Curriculum

Our curriculum is designed to engage residents in the breadth and depth of family medicine. Residents experience fast-paced, complex care provided in inpatient settings while being rooted in the continuity of care they provide in our home family medicine clinic. We encourage our residents to get involved in the many leadership, community health, medical education, and research opportunities we have to offer.
