The Grand Rapids Family Medicine Residency is a fully-accredited, community-based program that gives residents the broadest possible experience: urban and rural, hospital and physician's office, and the opportunity to treat people of all ages in a setting that stimulates the resident's future practice. We provide one of the best educational settings for family physicians in the country.
With a population of over half a million, the Grand Rapids community offers educational advantages of cities many times its size. The residency is based at Saint Mary's Health Care, but is sponsored by Grand Rapids Medical Education Partners. Primary care rotations occur in a number of patient care settings with the major educational experience taking place through practice at the Wege Center for Health and Learning at Saint Mary's. The Wege Center is designed to integrate the finest evidence based high tech care with the commitment to integration of mind-body-spirit in our work of healing.
