Welcome to the Saint Francis Healthcare Family Medicine Residency Program.
Our residency program, established in 1979, has consistently trained excellent
physicians in a respectful learning environment. We prepare physicians
to excel in a wide variety of practice settings. Our residents benefit
from the hands-on individualized teaching they receive in our community-based
residency program, and from the academic culture created through our affiliations
with Temple University School of Medicine and the Philadelphia College
of Osteopathic Medicine. Our family medicine center offers a broad variety
of patients with a demographic mix that promotes training across the lifespan.
Our highly committed faculty has achieved national recognition in various
areas, including medical education, leadership, health information technology,
and medical broadcasting.
Saint Francis Healthcare is truly a family medicine-friendly institution.
The residents and faculty care for patients in all areas of the hospital,
including inpatient medicine, ICU, special care nursery, and labor and
delivery. The focus on high quality patient care in our underserved patient
population requires a team approach between family physicians, specialists,
nurses, and staff. There is a strong sense of community here with a culture
of respect for patients of all backgrounds.
We invite you to learn more about our program and our community.
