Ascension Saint Joseph - Chicago's program curriculum is constantly evolving based on input from our residents. We aim to improve our training experiences to meet the future needs of our residents as well their patients. We offer a comprehensive curriculum designed to fully prepare our residents for all aspects of family practice.
Residents are assisted in completing a scholarly research project, which they are then encouraged to publish and or present, with support provided for conference presentations and awards offered for Outstanding Research at the annual hospitalwide Ascension Saint Joseph - Chicago Resident Research Day. Our monthly resident research meetings are not just a journal club, but are designed to teach physicians to critically analyze and evaluate the latest findings in the medical literature. Our faculty is actively engaged in scholarship, presenting at national conferences, and preparing publications — with many of our faculty authoring chapters in the 5-Minute Clinical Consult each year.
Ascension Saint Joseph - Chicago's family medicine department is one of the hospital's oldest, and has sponsored the Family Medicine Residency Program since 1972. It is an established and well-funded part of the hospital. We have an academic affiliation with The University of Illinois College of Medicine. As a resident, you will have opportunities to interact with, teach and mentor UIC medical students. Our rich environment of scholarship and educational teamwork will facilitate your growth and development as a family physician.
