Residency Programs

Welcome! The Department of Family and Community Medicine has been providing excellence in resident training for more than 40 years. We have one ACGME accredited Family Medicine program with two separate and unique family medicine tracks – the Alvernon track and the South Campus track. Residents enjoy clinical medicine and clinical research opportunities, numerous fellowship and advanced degree programs, excellent benefits and a diverse and talented faculty. Both tracks offer a strong and busy inpatient experience, outpatient practices with diverse and underserved populations, point-of-care ultrasound training (POCUS), dedicated refugee clinics, and the option to participate in the Health Care Disparities/Medical Spanish Distinction Track.

Please note, if you want to apply to both tracks, you must apply to each one separately, using their unique ERAS IDs.
