Mercyhealth Family Medicine Residency Program–Rockford fosters innovation while incorporating traditional family medicine, minor surgeries, obstetrical/gynecological care, and pediatrics into a dynamic educational process. The primary goal of the program is to equip future family medicine practitioners with the knowledge, experience, and skills necessary to provide exemplary patient care and positively impact the full spectrum of family practice health care delivery.
Throughout training, our residents will receive ample opportunities to refine their communication skills, apply evidence-based medicine, improve clinical outcomes through hands-on practice, and develop habits conducive to life-long learning and improvement in the field of family medicine. Mentorship and collaboration will be a critical component of this program and physicians will learn to practice as effective members of the health care system through multi-disciplinary, team-based care within the inpatient and ambulatory settings.
Overall, we hope to instill these physicians with a passion for making lives better and foster a patient-centered approach for all graduates as they continue on to independent medical practice.
