The CHM Integrated Medical School and Family Medicine Residency Program is a transitional fourth year medical school experience that continues into residency. It offers several benefits for both medical students and the residency program. Many medical students know they want to enter Family Medicine, know where they would like to be trained and are looking for that additional extra to become leaders in their discipline. Residency programs want the best students with the highest likelihood of staying in their communities. They want to create opportunities in which their residents thrive and lead their discipline forward.
