The educational program is based on two principles: first, that individualized guidance throughout residency training helps residents achieve their full potential as family physicians; second, that a diverse faculty with a wide variety of interests and strengths can best help residents achieve their goals.
Graduating residents will be able to:
• Manage the great majority of problems seen in Family Medicine
• Provide comprehensive and continuing care to patients of all ages and at all stages of life
• Work as a member of an interdisciplinary team
• Lead change and innovation in approaches to health care delivery with the goal of improving access, quality, efficiency, and satisfaction for all
• Recognize personal limitations in medical knowledge and skills and be committed to the idea of being life-long learners of the art and science of Family Medicine
• Reflect on their own personal growth and development as physicians, explore areas of stress and impairment, and find sources of support for themselves and their families.
