Program Overview

Welcome to the website for the Family and Community Medicine Residency. On these pages, you will find information and resources to allow you to become familiar with the Department of Family and Community Medicine residency at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. But stay tuned! Our institution is undergoing a major overhaul of our website systems.

The mission of the family medicine residency program is to train residents to become outstanding board-certified family physicians who are prepared for lifelong learning and teaching, community service and practice.

This is accomplished by creating an environment that emphasizes:

  • Commitment to comprehensive patient care throughout the life cycle in the context of family and community
  • Academic excellence including attention to principles of education and rigorous critical thinking
  • Commitment to reaching out and providing care for underserved populations
