Innovative education for the future family physician
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.
Our unique longitudinal curriculum is designed around the concept that adult learners incorporate information best by revisiting important topics over time. While emphasizing time in the Patient Centered Medical Home/FMC, we also hope that each resident who comes to our program can carve out an individualized educational experience that will prepare them for whatever setting they ultimately enter upon graduation: full-spectrum family medicine, fellowship, hospital work or outpatient practice.
We care for many underserved patients in our offices and hospital, which prompted us to start an underserved care track in 2016. Our hospital on the east side of Indianapolis is undergoing a renovation with a completion date in late 2018 to continue its history of being a strong pillar within the city.
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. In addition to learning full-spectrum family medicine skills, we emphasize physician leadership, interdisciplinary teamwork and 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.
We are happy to announce that Dr. Louis Winternheimer joined the Community East Family Medicine Residency faculty in September 2017! Learn more about him under Meet Our Faculty.
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!
