Family Practice Residency Program

The residency program has a state of the art Family Practice Center. Located in the medical office building adjacent to the Hospital, the Family Practice Center allows for efficient and cost-effective resident education and patient care. Family practice residents have direct access to Hospital resources and patient care experiences as they move easily between the Family Practice Center and the Hospital.

The Family Practice Center has:

  • 14 patient examination rooms
  • Special procedure rooms for colposcopy, other GYN procedures, and minor surgery
  • Physician conference room
  • Equipment for videotaping and viewing
  • Medical library with online computer capabilities
  • Special family conference and discussion room
  • Separate areas designated for resident work and study with computer access
  • Room for special procedures including spirometry, audiometry and tympanotomy

The opportunity to learn and practice in our newly expanded center greatly enhances outpatient training for our residents. More than 24,000 patients, representing all age, socioeconomic and ethnic segments of the population, are seen annually. In addition, the family practice center has an active inpatient service and a large geriatric and pediatric presence.
