Family Medicine ResidencyCurriculum

Curriculum Overview

Our Family Medicine Residency clinics are the center of our program, which is designed to train expert clinicians in the outpatient office setting. Both of our resident clinics provide outstanding, unique sites to build patient relationships and continuity clinic experience.

In addition, our program offers:

  • A focus on community health. The Community Health, Advocacy and Managing Populations (CHAMP) curriculum integrates throughout residency training.
  • Inpatient rotations in adult medicine, pediatrics and obstetrics, along with specialty rotations at some of the finest community hospitals and clinics in the Midwest.
  • Ample time for electives. Residents may choose focused areas of interest, including international rotations.

Rotation List

The Family Medicine Residency program offers more than 20 different opportunities to gain training in inpatient medicine. In addition to core rotations, a wide variety of electives are available. Elective rotation experiences can also be tailored by working with a faculty advisor.
