Approved Residencies - Family Medicine (30)

Family Medicine Residents for 2017 - 2018

The Family Medicine Residency Program at St. Petersburg General Hospital is approved by the American Osteopathic Association for 30 resident positions. The residency program utilizes a variety of teaching methods and settings to maximize the learning experience of the resident. Each curriculum area combines rotations, conferences and experience to provide the resident with a comprehensive training program.

The Family Medicine Residency program is designed to teach and train residents to enter into the field of Family Medicine, preparing them for board certification and to provide them with knowledge they will need to both care for patients in the primary care office arena and also in the environs of the hospital.

It is our feeling that for a resident to be properly trained in this era, they are best served by being capable of functioning in the hospital environment, but with a strong primary care base during the course of training. We provide this with excellent ongoing, longitudinal clinic experience during the duration of the Family Medicine Residency program at St. Pete Family Care.
