Medicine Residency! We are excited you are interested in our
residency program and look forward to you learning more about us.
We have a dynamic and diverse faculty, ideal patient population,
excellent physical locations, and a long history of training well
rounded family physicians over our 4 decade history.
Research Family Medicine is
situated in Kansas City, centered at Research Medical Center, a large
tertiary care community hospital in the urban core. Research
Medical Center provides routine and specialty care to a patients both
from the community and referred from our extensive outreach network.
Research Family Medicine is the only residency at our hospital, and has
access to the excellent teaching provided by all of our specialist
colleagues as well as our family physicians who practice and teach the
full scope of family medicine at our hospital.
Goppert Trinity Family Care,
our family medicine center practice, provides over 25,000 patient visits
per year, to a diverse patient population. As an NCQA recognized
Patient Centered Medical Home, we offer comprehensive services to our
community. You can expect to develop a continuity practice during
your 3 years of residency providing the breadth of family medicine.
Our residency also prides
itself on offering an excellent academic curriculum. There are
longitudinal curriculums for the inpatient medicine rotation, the
inpatient OB and newborn rotation, and the PGY1 office continuity
clinic. Time is reserved each day on these rotations to present
the core topics for each area, guaranteeing your exposure to key
education regardless of patient availability at the time. We also
have daily noon conferences with lunch provided, covering the breadth of
family medicine, taught both by family physicians and specialists in
each area. We review and update all curriculum regularly, to
ensure academic rigor and family medicine relevance.
The residency also offers
optional tracks in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine, OB, and
Integrative Medicine for those residents who want to deepen their
experience in those areas. Graduates consistently praise our
training in inpatient family medicine, maternity care, and the
complexities of our outpatient practice as strengths of the program.
The Residency seeks resident
applicants with a strong commitment to the breadth and depth of family
medicine and a desire for academically rigorous training. We look
forward learning more about each other through the application process
and in person interview. Congratulations on your interest in
family medicine – we are excited to share our passion with you!
