Family Medicine

The future foundation of our nation's health resides in the John Peter Smith Hospital Family Medicine Residency.

As the largest program in the country, we are proud of our storied tradition. Our graduates practice full service family medicine in nearly every state across the U.S. and in numerous countries around the globe. They serve their communities in a vast array of practice settings such as rural, suburban, international, inner city and academic. JPS graduates are proven leaders in their communities at local, state, and national levels.

JPS is known for unparalleled clinical experience and procedural training. In addition, rigorous academic instruction has resulted in record scores on the American Board of Family Medicine In-Training Examination each of the past nine years.

We are passionate about the future. Over the past 10 years we have led the nation in residency curriculum innovation to meet the needs of the communities our graduates serve.  We have focused on expanded, resident-driven individualized curricular tracks.   As a participant in the P4 initiative (Preparing the Personal Physician for Practice) and ACGME Length of Training Pilot, we are excited to be contributing to the change in family medicine education, including our optional fourth year track to obtain specialized training in the areas of the resident's choosing. We believe a personalized approach to resident education will produce the best physicians.

Welcome to the nation's premier family medicine residency.
