Welcome, and thank you for your interest in the Cook County Family Medicine Residency Program. This program has proud tradition of caring for the poor and medically underserved regardless of their ability to pay, national origin, or primary language. Our residents and faculty are advocates for our patients, helping them to access quality health care services.
The Cook County Family Medicine Residency Program provides residents with a comprehensive, fascinating and diverse training experience. Rotations are designed to facilitate learning in a community setting; while having access to the latest medical technology at two well-known medical centers. You will experience a mixture of a busy medical center with many other residents to an unopposed environment with one to one precepting. The Family Medicine Centers are the main activity sites for training, but residents provide continuity-of-care to patients as well in the hospital and residential settings, coordinating care plans that involve multi-disciplinary services and teams. The community medicine programs give residents access to young people with the goal of early intervention and illness prevention.
We have a diverse faculty with many areas of expertise and experience, all enthusiastic about teaching and mentoring.
There are many exciting opportunities in family medicine for graduate physicians in medical practice, research, administration and academic medicine. The health care challenges of today and the future await dedicated and innovative leaders; the goal of the Cook County Family Medicine Residency Program is to train our residents to become those leaders. We invite you to apply and look forward to hearing from you soon!
