Family Medicine

Our Family Medicine Residency Program is focused on training physicians to develop a broad base of knowledge, a dedication to compassionate care and a love for practicing family medicine.

With numerous educational settings and patient experiences, this comprehensive program prepares physicians to not only provide health care to people of all ages, but also to assume leadership roles in medicine and the community, and contribute to the evolving knowledge base of family practice.
 
Our Family Medicine Residency Program is a three-year (36 month) osteopathic post-graduate program. The program is an AOA-approved residency with both DO and MD faculty physicians which accepts five new residents each academic year.
 
Continuity of care for patients is at the core of the family medicine philosophy and is a top priority in our program. The ambulatory care experience provides evidenced-based, quality health care and practicing at Samaritan Family Medicine Resident Clinic helps to provide the longitudinal hands-on training for our resident physicians.

The requirements for continuity clinic participation are as follows:

  • PGY 1     one half day per week
  • PGY 2     four half days per week
  • PGY 3     four half days per week
