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.
Chief Residents Moohiuddin, Kundapar, Ahiarah, and Brauer
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
