Residency program aims

Teach residents and students to deliver high quality, evidence-based, comprehensive care to patients and families with undifferentiated problems over time regardless of age, gender, illness, or organ system.

Develop a curriculum that is flexible and sensitive to the needs of residents, fellows, students, and the community.

Train residents to provide primary care in an underserved and/or rural population with emphasis on social determinants of health.

Develop and maintain outstanding interprofessional medical education programs for medical students, residents, fellows, and practicing physicians. We aspire to excellence among faculty and learners, and desire for our teaching to be learner-based, centered on adult learning principles and fully leveraging information technology.

Teach residents how to function as a member of a multidisciplinary team within the Patient Centered Medical Home model, caring for patients in the hospital, the continuity clinic, nursing home and home settings.
