The Riverside Family Medicine Residency was founded in 1971 and has produced more than one-third of VCU’s family medicine residents. The program offers a blend of advanced technology, a supportive environment and great training in family medicine. More than 100 faculty members with a full range of specialties provide excellent one-on-one teaching.

The program is sponsored by the Riverside Health System with inpatient experience at Riverside Regional Medical Center in Newport News, Va. The nearby beaches and easy access to Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown make the surrounding area a comfortable and interesting place to live and work.
