Family Medicine Residency Offers Comprehensive Clinical Training and Research Opportunities

Our three-year Case Western Reserve University/University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program is located in the heart of Cleveland, Ohio. We are close to Case Western Reserve University in University Circle and near Cleveland's major cultural institutions.

Our mission is to train and educate family physician leaders with the necessary tools to succeed across the spectrum of family medicine and with a special focus on caring for underserved patients and communities. Our training emphasizes the following:

  • Acquisition of primary care-centered procedural skills
  • Development of critical thinking skills and medical decision making
  • Excellence in the care of complex and medically vulnerable patients
  • Professional development in an environment that promotes life-long learning

Our program offers the opportunity to care for a diverse patient population in a variety of circumstances, promoting teamwork, leadership and a commitment to both prevention and healing of illness and disease. Our faculty are dedicated to teaching our residents so that they graduate confident in their ability to provide high-quality clinical care as they forge a satisfying and durable medical career in the field of family medicine and community health.

During the three years of training, our residents meet milestones in their education and professional growth as their knowledge and wisdom evolve. Our residents participate in formal didactic programs, but more importantly, learn how to expand knowledge in a variety of clinical contexts using an array of resources.

Our program offers diverse experiences beyond the clinic that encourage residents to discover their interests and talents. With regards to research, our department is one of the most productive and varied family medicine research divisions nationally.
