In considering quality and excellence in family
practice education, we consider the Trident Family
Medicine Residency Program to be one of the best
family medicine residency programs in the country.
While subjectively many other programs may be able
to state a similar claim, we feel we have the record
in patient care, education, and scholarly activity
to provide objectivity to our assessment:
- In-training exam scores above national average
and a 99% pass rate on the American Board of Family
- Faculty who serve as members and leaders of
state and national committees regarding family
practice and resident education.
- Faculty with over 200 publications in peer-reviewed
- Faculty who can serve as exemplary role models
in patient care (numerous faculty have received
the "Best Doctors in America" designation).
- Residents consistently grade the faculty and
their educational skills as very good to excellent.
With our record in patient care, education, and
scholarly activity, we are confident that you will
feel our program provides an excellent opportunity
to further your education in family practice.
