Educational Philosophy

The most important objective of the Georgetown University-Providence Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program is be innovative in our training methods and provide our graduates with the experience and skills necessary to provide patients with the highest standard of medical care.

Our core faculty members engage in full-spectrum Family Medicine, including: obstetrics, inpatient and outpatient care, pediatric and geriatric medicine, and have executive and administrative leadership roles at Providence Hospital and the D.C. Academy of Family Physicians.  Our preceptors compliment core faculty by representing many facets of family medicine, including community medicine, geriatrics, health communications, public health, health policy and preventive medicine.

Maintaining these skills and surrounding residents with faculty with a wide breadth of experience lends itself to developing well-rounded, emerging leaders in family medicine.

A diverse, underserved patient population and care coordination services adapted to patients’ needs prepare our residents to work in any setting.

Our block rotation curriculum is complimented by longitudinal curricula in community medicine, evidence-based medicine/medical informatics, health policy, health systems management, patient communication, procedures, and residents as teachers.
