Application

We appreciate your interest in the United Family Medicine Residency Program and look forward to the opportunity to meet you and your family members and to provide you with a more thorough look at our program. Our formal interview process (mid-October through mid-January) will ensure access to our residents, program director, faculty, and facilities. We invite you to spend an informal evening with our residents and their family members and to explore housing and job placement opportunities for your spouse or significant other during your visit.

For our traveling applicants, we are pleased to provide the cost of an overnight accommodation. We also encourage you to become more acquainted with our program by taking time to visit for a more laid-back, informal look at our program at any time during the year, as well. (However, a formal interview must be scheduled for consideration in the Match process.)

Applicants are invited to schedule an optional dinner and second-look visit as meets their needs in finalizing the decision-making process. If you are interested in any of these invitations, please feel free to give us a call.
