Overview

 

The University at Buffalo residency program in Family Medicine has been training residents since 1969, making it one of the three original programs in the United States. We have had over 350 resident graduates who have gone on to successful positions as Family doctors, AAFP President, Academic Department Chairs (7), Sports Medicine physicians, CEOs of HMOs, Geriatricians, Emergency Physicians, Authors, and Researchers.

We have 48 residents in our three year program, with 16 graduating each year. We attract residents from UB School of Medicine and other medical schools in the US and around the world. Residents work elbow-to-elbow with attending role models in Family Medicine Centers, hospitals, nursing homes, and patient homes. This is a challenging, stimulating, but supportive environment for training.

We are delighted to announce the opening of our new Jefferson Family Medicine Center to replace the closing Deaconess Family Medicine Center, both in downtown Buffalo. We have also just significantly expanded our Cleve-Hill Family Health Center, previously a faculty-run site, to accommodate residents previously at the Buffalo Community Health Center. This effectively means we have two new Family Medicine Centers for residency training. We are proud that all five of our outpatient training centers are now modern, well-equipped, appealing facilities.

Recent curricular changes have been made to increase opportunities for procedural training.  A reproductive health module is in the works, and many of our graduates go on to do colonoscopies in the outpatient setting.  Emergency Medicine core rotations and electives leave our residents well equipped to function in the ED.

Potential applicants, be sure to explore all the nooks and crannies of this website, but don't hesitate to call or email us for further information.
