physical locations, and a long history of training well rounded family
physicians over our 4 decade history.

tertiary care community hospital in the urban core. Research Medical
Center provides routine and specialty care to a patients both from the
community and referred from our extensive outreach network. Research
Family Medicine is the only residency at our hospital, and has access to
the excellent teaching provided by all of our specialist colleagues as
well as our family physicians who practice and teach the full scope of
family medicine at our hospital.
Goppert Trinity Family Care,
our family medicine center practice, provides over 25,000 patient visits
per year, to a diverse patient population. As an NCQA recognized
Patient Centered Medical Home, we offer comprehensive services to our
community. You can expect to develop a continuity practice during your
3 years of residency providing the breadth of family medicine.
Our residency also prides
itself on offering an excellent academic curriculum. There are
longitudinal curriculums for the inpatient medicine rotation, the
inpatient OB and newborn rotation, and the PGY1 office continuity
clinic. Time is reserved each day on these rotations to present the
core topics for each area, guaranteeing your exposure to key education
regardless of patient availability at the time. We also have daily noon
conferences with lunch provided, covering the breadth of family
medicine, taught both by family physicians and specialists in each
area. We review and update all curriculum regularly, to ensure academic
rigor and family medicine relevance.
The residency also offers
optional tracks in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, OB, and
Integrative Medicine for those residents who want to deepen their
experience in those areas. Graduates consistently praise our training
in inpatient family medicine, maternity care, and the complexities of
our outpatient practice as strengths of the program.
The Residency seeks resident
applicants with a strong commitment to the breadth and depth of family
medicine and a desire for academically rigorous training. We look
forward learning more about each other through the application process
and in person interview. Congratulations on your interest in family
medicine – we are excited to share our passion with you!
