Family Medicine Resident Experience

The Family Medicine Resident Experience | A half-day just for medical students

Made for medical students.

The Family Medicine Resident Experience is a half-day of education and connections for medical students.

Get your “feet wet” in family medicine with hands-on procedures and visits with residency program faculty. Then stay for lunch and connect with residents and faculty from the programs where you want to match over bowling or bocce or around the outdoor fire ring.
