Thank you for your interest in the Community Hospital East Family Medicine Residency program at Community Health Network. Our innovative program trains family physicians to become outstanding leaders in the delivery of primary care, with an emphasis on practice in the Patient Centered Medical Home.

We have a unique longitudinal curriculum that is designed around the concept that adult learners incorporate information best by revisiting important topics over time. While we do emphasize time in the Patient Centered Medical Home/FMC, we also hope that each resident who comes to our program can carve out a unique educational experience that will prepare them for whatever setting they ultimately enter upon graduation, whether that setting includes full-spectrum family medicine, a fellowship, hospitalist work, or outpatient-only practice.

As a resident in our program, you will train in a primary care-focused community health network, an environment we feel is ideal for instruction in family medicine. Practicing in the office and community hospital are perfect settings for the education needed to become a stellar family physician. In addition to learning full-spectrum family medicine skills, we also emphasize physician leadership, interdisciplinary teamwork, as well as process improvement in our residents’ education. Our program carries a long track record of excellence as evidenced by our continuous accreditation by the ACGME, our graduates’ success on ABFP certification exams, and the support from our health network for family medicine education for over 40 years.

Although our website contains a lot of information, it cannot tell you who we really are. Getting to know our team, our faculty and residents and staff, will tell the story of who we are. Our residents are our greatest assets, and for prospective applicants, you will find they are often the best source of information. We have a family-like, team environment here that makes our program a supportive and enjoyable place to train!

Best of luck to you as you finish your medical school career. Please contact us if you have any questions!
