The Union Hospital Family Medicine Residency opened in 1976. Since that time, the program has been considered one of the elite Family Medicine programs in the Midwest. Being both community-based and a single-sponsored residency training program has been instrumental in the program's development. Our residents meet with other Family Medicine residents from around the country at various meetings. Upon comparing each other's experiences, our residents have had tremendous opportunities, particularly in hospital and procedural medicine.

Rather than being a residency program that talks about an individualized 3-year training experience, we actually do it. Beginning in their first year, residents routinely meet with their faculty advisor to assist in tailoring a 3-year experience to meet each individual's needs. Our program has developed nine major elective tracks. These opportunities include a rural experience, hospitalist medicine, emergency medicine, advanced OB including operative OB, academic medicine, sports medicine, geriatric medicine, and outpatient medicine.

The Family Medicine Center, where the residency is located, is directly connected to Union Hospital. It is a 24,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility with 28 exam rooms and two procedure rooms.

Because of the long history of our program, the Residency and Union Hospital's commitment to providing the necessary resources, the strength of our faculty, the strong support from the community physicians and Union Hospital, we developed a passion for residency training several years ago. That passion exists today. We are determined to prepare our residents to be the best doctors they can be.

 

 

Our Mission

The Union Hospital Family Medicine Residency exists to educate and prepare physicians to provide full-spectrum family medicine. We accomplish this through individualized educational opportunities, the privilege of caring for patients in rural and under-served communities, and the integration of evolving technology -- all to enhance clinical skills, quality of care, and life-long learning. Our goal is to graduate compassionate, competent and ethical clinicians who are stewards of their community.

 

Our Vision

In 2011, it became our goal to be the premier Family Medicine residency in the Midwest. Premier – meaning that we are financially sound, truly innovative, and more attractive than our Midwest competitors. We not only achieved this goal but exceeded expectations of Union Hospital administration. Our 7 faculty physicians are all dedicated to teaching and are passionate about developing and training family medicine physicians who not only practice high quality medicine, but are compassionate, highly respected leaders in their medical communities. Under their leadership, residents have excelled in scholarly activity and research, community involvement, and experiential learning opportunities – all with the ability to customize their education based on their personal and professional interests and the needs of their medical communities.

Union Hospital Family Medicine Residency is committed to recruiting physicians who will serve the Wabash Valley and gradually replace the aging physicians in the community. We will continue utilizing competitive recruiting techniques to bring talented physicians into the program and the community.CommunityService
