class of 2021 united family physician residents

The United Family Medicine Residency Program is an American Council of Graduate Medical Education accredited program of medical education and training in family medicine. The program is sponsored by Allina Health and is approved for 21 residency positions (7- 7- 7.) The residency achieves this goal with and for its residents by utilizing the extensive resources of the Allina Health system, which include United Hospital, Children's Hospital - St. Paul, the other urban Allina Health hospitals, and the resource rich and viable rural settings. 

The ambulatory setting is in the West 7th Community, which has a long-standing reputation of service to the community. There is a rich history of partnership with individuals, families, and community. In addition to the clinic site, the ambulatory component is comprised of working in a well-established high-risk teen OB clinic in a multi-cultural clinic, with a community outreach worker, with local community organizations, in the rural ambulatory care settings, and making home visits.

The United Family Medicine Residency Program is committed to high quality, full-spectrum primary care working in partnership with its surrounding community to improve the community's health. The program resides in the West 7th Community and a short distance from United Hospital and Children's Hospital - St. Paul, which serve as its core hospitals. United Hospital is the preeminent tertiary hospital in St. Paul. Our ambulatory setting has served a long-standing patient population and provides a sliding fee scale focusing on meeting the needs of the medically underserved, balanced with serving persons who span the economic spectrum. The experience here is rich. 

The residency program also incorporates a core two-month rural clinic/hospital rotation in the second year in well-established and viable rural health care sites. The Children's Hospital - St. Paul affiliation facilitates exceptional training in pediatrics and United Hospital's perinatology facilitates training in high-risk obstetrics, as well as family-centered maternity care.

The United Family Medicine Residency Program strives to offer residents and students quality experiences while improving the health of the communities served. Residents who seek individual attention and a close relationship with colleagues and faculty members will find our program especially satisfying.
