Experience & Diversity in Family Medicine Residency
An excellent feature of our residency program is that we have both community medicine and large system opportunities available.
We are a community-based residency but because we are a part of the University Hospital system, there are dozens of locations across the Greater Cleveland area where rotation opportunities can be met. We are able to rotate at University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center, which is a 1,000-plus bed tertiary care center, and we can rotate at University Hospitals Conneaut Medical Center, which is a 25-bed Critical Access hospital. These sites allow for very different experiences that will provide residents with the ability to work as a team and autonomously. These experiences will help prepare residents for whatever future opportunities arise after residency has completed.
We also have seven different core family practice faculty providing continuity clinic sites that are located throughout the eastern Cleveland suburbs. This offers a wide variety of patient populations and teaching styles allowing residents to obtain a plethora of skills in order to work in any outpatient clinic. We have clinics in University Hospitals Bedford Medical Center, a campus of UH Regional Hospitals; a clinic attached to a stand-alone emergency room, and clinics that are family practice only – providing many different outpatient clinic experiences.
