Our program is located on the hospital campus of Alton Memorial Hospital, in a brand-new administrative and educational space. Our faculty and resident outpatient clinical practice occurs onsite within the clinical practice of Southern Illinois Healthcare Foundation, a FQHC serving vulnerable patients throughout the region. Residents in our program spend the majority of their time in Alton itself, but also benefit from experiences in St. Louis and in rural Illinois communities. As the fifth and newest residency program within SIU Family and Community Medicine (FCM), our program benefits from SIU FCM’s many years of successful administration of resident education throughout the state.
We provide broad spectrum Family Medicine training while serving the communities of the greater Metro-East St. Louis region in south-central Illinois. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to providing high-quality resident education while focusing on maintaining personal wellness and excellent patient care. This is highlighted by our innovative call schedule and dedication to maintaining continuity for patients with their resident physicians in continuity clinics.
