EAMC Family Medicine Residency is truly a unique program in that it is housed in a large medical center which affords boundless opportunities to interact with every subspecialty, yet embodies a “small hospital” community where residents exercise autonomy when taking care of their patients. Family Medicine residents are considered peers to our specialty colleagues and are encouraged to learn from one-on-one patient experiences and didactics. We embody a “family” atmosphere where teaching is considered a privilege and joy. Students are an essential part of our quest for teaching excellence. You will be considered an integral part of the team and are invited, even encouraged to participate in any and all residency events during your stay!
Student physicians see a broad range of patients with their staff and resident preceptors. Students have the opportunity to participate in, and direct, the healthcare of children, adults, the elderly, and the pregnant. In addition to ambulatory clinics, students will serve as a member of the inpatient team, participate in a variety of procedures (colposcopy, dermatological procedures, exercise treadmill testing, endometrial biopsy, intrauterine (IUD) placement, implantable contraception, obstetrical ultrasound, osteopathic manipulation treatment, acupuncture, and vasectomy), and sports medicine clinics. Formal didactic sessions will include daily morning reports and after clinic conferences as well as a weekly residency didactic session. Students can expect to receive constructive feedback and formal evaluations that concentrate less on giving a “grade” than giving you tools in which to hone your skills as a clinician. You will be challenged while you’re here. It’s all in the name of ensuring your success in your future endeavors.
