Training Future Family Physicians
The University of North Dakota Family Medicine Residency, Fargo, is dedicated to training physicians of excellence who will treat the whole person from birth until end-of-life, working in both urban and rural environments. They will be trained to empower people to live healthier lives through the use of team based care and the most current evidence-based medicine.
The UND Family Medicine Residency is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). This program welcomed our first class of five residents in July 2017. Five residents will be added each year until we reach the full complement of 15 in this 36-month program. These initial residents will have the opportunity to significantly influence many aspects of the program structure and curriculum.
Most of the resident rotations will be with Sanford Medical Center Fargo. There also will be a two-month rotation at a rural site either in eastern North Dakota or northern Minnesota.
Our teaching physicians in family medicine and specialties are experts in their respective fields, and due to the small program, this allows for extensive one-on-one contact and instruction.
