Medical Education Programs
Medical school programs
As part of our commitment to lifetime care, the Family Medicine Clinical, Education, and Research Programs strive to provide an advanced, hands-on education that prepares the next generation of family medicine physicians, beginning with our medical school programs. The Department has a long history of teaching in the medical school curriculum, from both clinical and population health perspectives.
Training for family medicine residents is based at unique practice sites around the Commonwealth of Virginia rather than exclusively at our large, tertiary medical center, thus offering the opportunity to experience a variety of practice settings, from major metropolitan area to suburbs to rural regions. Residents train in each type of environment and may focus on the practice setting best suited to their preferences while benefitting from a committed, experienced faculty who provide strong academics and personal mentoring.
