The different programs have emphases in the skills they teach and in the patient populations they serve. Each of these outstanding programs provides high-quality education to family physicians in training. The graduates of these programs are skillfully prepared to care for patients in a variety of settings and to practice in the medical homes of the future.
The three programs have different emphases in the skills they teach and in the patient populations they serve. All programs share a common set of guiding principles, and their faculty work together to enhance their common educational activities.
Each program functions independently; however, they all collaborate through a graduate medical education committee composed of three residency directors (or their representatives), two fellowship directors, and the vice-chair for education. The committee works together on curriculum development, faculty development, resident recruitment and operating policies.
Collectively they are responsible for approximately 60 residents and 3 to 5 fellows per year. These residency sites actively participate in medical student education, clinical and research activities of the Department of Family Medicine.
