FAMILY MEDICINE CLINICS

Dot Line

The Family Medicine Clinic is where residents learn to be family physicians. Our residents learn effective models of outpatient care, disease prevention, health promotion, and practice management skills throughout their three years of training. Aurora's Care Management Initiatives give each resident constant feedback on practice-based improvement and the use of clinical protocols to optimize chronic disease management and prevention for their patients.

Our Family Medicine Resident Clinics are optimally geared for effective care delivery and learning. Each site includes numerous exam rooms including procedure rooms (minor surgery, colposcopy, and osteopathic manipulation treatment). Residents benefit from on-site PharmD faculty and residents, laboratory, and digital radiology viewing facilities. Each site features "in-house specialty clinics" in the areas of obstetrics and gynecology, procedures, OMT, and sports medicine. In these clinics, our residents work one-on-one with faculty who have special expertise in these areas to enhance residents' knowledge and procedural skills.

We use a fully integrated electronic medical record throughout all Aurora facilities. Each clinic is designed around large staffing rooms where residents have access to faculty staffers, extensive clinic libraries, and on-line access to the Aurora Libraries Intranet Site (ALIS). A unique feature of our Family Medicine clinic experience is that each clinic has exam rooms with video monitoring for innovative video-precepting in real time. These features provide the resident an optimal training environment in Family Medicine for the 21st century.

In 2010, both of our Family Medicine centers were the first resident clinics in the state to become NCQA Certified Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Homes. This model of care delivers the safest, highest quality, most cost-effective care while paying close attention to the personal needs of each patient. Residents training in this environment learn a systems-based approach to patient-centered care.

Finally, we care deeply about the wellness of each of our residents and staff. Residents have access to the exercise facilities within each hospital after hours and on weekends.  Our resident led wellness series includes community activities such as health talks at local schools, planting gardens at the Urban Ecology Center, and group Art Therapy projects.  This helps each resident develop their own sense of belonging and purpose.  The professional development series supports residents and provides skills development in the areas of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, resilience, and leadership to assist in the transition to residency and successful life in medicine.
