residency clinics, resident physicians see patients and provide care under the direction of board-certified Family Medicine physicians.
Residents are physicians who are receiving additional training after obtaining their doctor of medicine degrees. Residents have completed medical school and are gaining additional training in a field of specialized medicine, such as pediatrics or surgery.
Resident physicians consult as a team with supervising board-certified faculty physicians as they complete additional years of training. They'll take the time you need while sharing the latest advances in medical training.
