Family Medicine Residency
Why choose us?
Top training for top students
Tight, close-knit teams
The Ascension Resurrection Family Medicine Residency Program encourages each resident to get the most out of their education by allowing individual style and experiences to help steer their goals and electives. Camaraderie within your year group, and between year groups, is one of the strengths of the program to allow everyone the best experience.
Each resident is assigned to a team that includes residents from all postgraduate levels, as well as a faculty member who acts as your advisor, keeping track of your progress during the program. Team members cover during vacations, educational meetings, and when you are not in the office. You remain with your team and team leader during your three years at Ascension Resurrection developing a camaraderie and simulated group practice.
Progressive and comprehensive curriculum
Extraordinary hospital dynamics
Our residents lead an inpatient medicine team comprised of interns from our competitive transitional year residency program and medical students from Loyola University, Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, University of Illinois, and Rosalind Franklin School of Medicine. This inpatient team is responsible for hospitalized clinic patients, pediatric admissions, and the rapid response service. Our program is complemented by Ascension Resurrection's outstanding emergency medicine residency and their ultrasound fellowship, enhancing trainees critical care education on ER and ICU rotations.
Ascension Resurrection features permanent resident rotators from affiliated OB/GYN and surgery residencies. Our residents also benefit from working with the palliative care fellowship and pharmacy residency programs.
