The Swedish Family Medicine Residency is a community-based program located in the south Denver metro area. The residency program has outstanding residents (6 per year) and an experienced, exceptional group of faculty physicians.
Almost all residents’ rotations occur at Swedish Medical Center, a Level I Trauma Center where there are no other residency programs. Residents are an integral part of the hospital, as they serve on hospital committees and participate in hospital and departmental conferences.
The program is modeled after the daily life of a family physician. This structure is accomplished by the extensive time commitment to patient care at the Swedish Family Medicine Center (residency outpatient site) throughout the three years of the residency, and through a unique, single, integrated Inpatient Service (IPS). The IPS provides the continuity opportunities of non-rotational programs, but retains the strengths of in-depth exposure to different disciplines, inherent in traditional rotational programs.
This program is a great opportunity for any student interested in:
- maximizing educational time with family physicians;
- an early emphasis on ambulatory training;
- a training model which provides a more realistic approximation to family medicine than traditional specialty-based rotational models;
- working in a challenging, educationally stimulating, supportive and fun environment in a great location with great people
