Facility

The Family Medicine Center is a 15,000 sq ft facility built in 2003 and provides comprehensive family care by both residents and faculty. It was specially designed for resident teaching. When residents are in clinic, they have two to three examination rooms for their exclusive use. A family counseling room and two procedure rooms also are available.

Number of Clinics

  • Inpatient rotations: 1-2 clinics/week
  • Outpatient rotations: 3-5 clinics/week

Patient Volumes Managed

Residents will average seeing 6 patients per clinic during their first year, about 8 patients per clinic during their second year and 10 patients per clinic in their third year. Managing this clinic volume requires learning some efficiency as the patients managed tend to be complex. Patient demand for services remains consistently high as we are one of the few safety net clinics in our area.

Other Outpatient Clinic Experiences

In addition to family medicine clinics, many other outpatient specialty clinics are structured for teaching. Training in the specialty clinics is based on the medical problems rather than continuity of care. These opportunities expand the outpatient training available to residents in our program.
