Family Medicine

About the Program

Image: Family MedicineThe Family Medicine residency is a comprehensive training program, which instructs physicians in the care of the entire family.

The program focuses on the complex bio-medical skills needed by physicians to provide total healthcare to their patients and not just disease management. Our educational philosophy is that disease is not a random occurrence, thus our primary focus is on evidence based preventive medicine.

However, the best evidence-based approach is fruitless unless the physician can influence their patients to implement the necessary changes needed to promote a health sustaining life style. To that end, our program teaches clinicians how to be medical leaders, who can inspire patients to make those changes and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
