Family Practice Residency Program
Mount Sinai’s Chicago Family Practice Residency Program is an urban, community-based residency program that’s fully accredited and recognized by the ACGME. Affiliated with Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine and Sinai Urban Community Institute, it allows residents to serve a diverse patient population and treat a wide range of diseases and pathology.
Brief Overview of Program
The Family Practice Residency Program at Mount Sinai features hospital-based curriculum that consists of the majority of conventional block rotations; office-based curriculum that emphasizes both the preventative care and chronic diseases that are predominant in family practice settings; and community-based curriculum that considers socioeconomic status, cultural beliefs and political processes, in relation to how they affect the health outcomes of the general population. Through this intentional training, family practice residents emerge from our program confident of the skills needed to care for the whole health of diverse patients. What’s more, we are currently working on expanding our program further to include additional residents, research opportunities for residents and curriculum tailored to prepare residents for practice in the era of constantly changing demographics and health care reform.
