UM/JMH Family Medicine Residency
We are proud of our program’s strong academic curriculum. This has resulted in a 100% board pass rate since 2012, and confident family physicians with a broad range of experience and knowledge.
Our academic days are held on Wednesday mornings. Our goal is to prepare our learners to tackle the most challenging of cases in the ever-growing field of medicine, and ingrain in them a culture of life-long learning. We welcome speakers with keen interest and experience to lecture on the most recent practices and research in their respective fields.
Our workshops provide longitudinal hands-on training and skill set refreshers. Interactive Board Review complements resident self-study, as we continue to have a 100% board pass rate since 2012. Academic Day also provides the opportunity for our residents to present their research, debate Morbidity & Mortality cases, and regularly participate in Wellness Days.
RESIDENT RESEARCH AT CONFERENCES
Residents are given 1-2 weeks per academic year to work on a scholarly activity and are encouraged to collaborate within our department and with departments across the health system. We provide faculty guidance as well as institutional support via classes such as Quality Improvement seminars and Lean Six Sigma training. Jackson Memorial Hospital's Graduate Medical Education hosts an event to display residents' scholarly activity.
Our residents’ articles have been well published, and they have featured presentations at regional and national conferences including:
American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP)
Florida Academy of Family Physicians (FAFP)
American Medical Society for Sports Medicine (AMSSM)
Our inpatient team is run exclusively by our family medicine faculty. Our inpatient faculty teach impromptu based on our clinical cases, as well as coordinate student-led and resident-led teaching on a daily basis. The inpatient census often serves as a springboard for scholarly activity as well.
Being a family doctor provides you with
lifelong human interactions.
