The Department of Family Medicine and Rural Health offers residency programs in Family Medicine. It currently has one program in operation at Lee Health in Fort Myers, Florida. For complete information, visit the link.
The program’s mission is to develop family physicians who are leaders in the community, committed to caring for the underserved; who will provide high-quality, affordable primary care which includes treatment, prevention and health promotion. We will train them to care for the physical, spiritual, and emotional needs of patients, their families and the community.
The Family Medicine Residency Program is designed to fulfill the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) competencies in Patient Care, Medical Knowledge, Interpersonal and Communication Skills, Professionalism, Practice-Based Learning and Improvement, and Systems- Based Practice. The curriculum offers a balanced learning environment within various settings (hospital, ambulatory, emergency, home and long-term care) and rotations in a variety of areas and specialties: pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, geriatrics, and other electives. Residents will develop skills that will equip them to be competent family medicine physicians.
