The Family Medicine Residency Program at Bryn Mawr Hospital is fully accredited in the training of allopathic and osteopathic family physicians by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The program was established in 1975 and has over four decades of experience training doctors for the practice of family medicine. When our graduates complete training, they have developed a sophisticated level of knowledge, skills and clinical experience, as well as a personal concern for the patient.
Vision and goals
The overall goal of the Family Medicine Residency Program is to educate graduate physicians to become specialists in family medicine, physicians who assume the responsibility for providing comprehensive, quality health care for the patient and family.
The Residency Program provides the proper settings, educational experiences and resources so that family physicians can learn to be competent, board-certified, compassionate family doctors.
Through the stimulating experience at the Family Medicine Residency Program, the resident physicians are supported in balancing the priorities between their personal and professional lives. The rotations, call and the goals and objectives for each clinical rotation are based on the expectation that the resident will perform well when properly educated, challenged and supported.
A large portion of each resident's tenure in the Family Medicine Residency Program at Bryn Mawr Hospital is spent at the Bryn Mawr Family Practice—a full-service medical practice located in Suite 200 at 135 South Bryn Mawr Avenue on the campus of Bryn Mawr Hospital, where residents get hands-on experience treating patients ranging from infants to seniors under the guidance and direction of board-certified faculty members.
The family physician, now and in the future, holds a key position in any health care system. By being part of an integrated health care system, our family medicine residents are able to provide comprehensive care to patients, regardless of their age, disease or socioeconomic status. Our residency program thrives on the strengths of the Main Line Health system—shared medical staff, consolidation of resources and a growing practice network.
This rich environment helps us reach our program's ultimate goal: to provide competent family physicians to our community. We educate our residents to become proficient at a level of medicine that is state-of-the-art, so that they can practice their specialty “straight from the heart.”
