Family Medicine Center

We are committed to providing all of the resources necessary for our residents to become excellent family physicians in a state-of-the art new Family Medicine Center. This center has been designed to specifically address the “New Model of Care.” Informed by the Future of Family Medicine report, the “New Model of Care” proposes transformational redesign of both work and workplaces (TransforMED) to better serve the changing needs of patients, physicians, and practice teams. The Center will be a “relationship-centered personal medical home” through which all individuals, regardless of age, gender, race, ethnicity, or socioeconomic status, participate in their health care." The Family Medicine Center is recognized by BC/BS as a Patient Centered Medical Home and is commended by the ACGME as a model for other residency programs on a national level. We offer:
