The Family Medicine Center is a 15,000 square foot facility located in the Robert C. Byrd Clinical Teaching Center adjacent to Memorial Hospital. Completed in 2008, the office is equipped with an electronic health record, a comfortable working environment and a lecture/conference room. We are proud to boast that our center serves over 14,000 patients a year.
First year residents start with two half-days of office per week and advance to four half-days of office per week in PGY 2 and
PGY 3. Residents also complete a continuity nursing home experience at Meadowbrook, a skilled nursing facility during PGY 2 and PGY 3. Home visits are incorporated into the curriculum as well.
Continuing education is provided through a series of lectures and resident driven didactic sessions. The program also utilizes our state of the art Simulation Center to assess and teach clinical skills. Throughout the three year curriculum, there are multiple teaching events held at the Simulation Center, utilizing patient simulators, paid simulated patients and modern equipment to enhance the skills of our residents.
Our family medicine program is truly an enriching and rewarding experience that fosters and nurtures the development of competent and caring family physicians. If you are interested in accepting the challenging offer put before you, apply to our program through ERAS. We are dually accredited through the ACGME and the AOA.
