Welcome to the Crozer Health Family Medicine Residency Program
Our Family Medicine Residency has access to all of the resources of the Crozer Health, including tertiary and community hospitals, a primary-care physician network, and comprehensive community outreach and wellness health programs.
Our most important attribute is our exceptional group of residents, who are committed to their own professional development through our competency-based curriculum and flexible elective system. Our residents have consistently demonstrated impressive teamwork and collaborative problem solving to enhance every aspect of our program. In this way, they are truly partners with the faculty in reviewing, revising, and shaping our program to keep it relevant, practical, and successful. The relationship of the residents with our Crozer “family” is vitally important and continues to be mutually positive and supportive long after residency training is completed.
We have progressive and committed full-time faculty, including a behavioral scientist. All our faculty has advanced training in sports medicine, obstetrics, women’s health, geriatrics, or faculty development. Our teaching faculty members are engaged in scholarly pursuits and give presentations at both the regional and national level. They also partner with the residents for research activities, publications, and other scholarly activities.
Our Primary Outpatient Office
Our Center for Family Health office, located in Springfield, Delaware County, is designed to provide us with all the “tools of the trade” to practice the full spectrum of family medicine. We use the Centricity electronic medical record in our patient care. Many patient rooms in our office are also engineered with video and sound monitoring to aid in the precepting process.
Our Urban Office
Our Center for Family Health office in Upper Darby, Delaware County is an FQHC in the ChesPenn network. Experience in an FQHC teaches residents to manage patient healthcare needs for a culturally diverse and underserved patient population. Community outreach is encouraged with opportunities for community service projects.
Primary Care Sports Medicine
We are leaders in the field of Primary Care Sports Medicine. In conjunction with our own highly competitive Sports Medicine Fellowship, we are the school physicians for many local school districts and provide comprehensive on- and off-field athletic evaluations at all levels.
Family-Centered Maternity Care
Our family medicine obstetrical faculty runs our Family-Centered Maternity Care Program. Our residents deliver 50 to 60 babies every year, and these pregnancies are followed from pregnancy diagnosis to delivery. Each resident follows a panel of obstetric patients from the time of pregnancy diagnosis until delivery and then continues to follow the mother and child as their primary physician. Thus, each resident can proudly say that they practice the full spectrum of “womb to tomb” family medicine!
Women’s Health is an integral part of our training experience. Residents gain experience caring for women on their Obstetrics and Gynecology rotations, as well as in the outpatient setting of both Centers for Family Health. In the outpatient office, issues such as cancer prevention, cardiovascular health, mental health and osteoporosis prevention are addressed, along with gynecologic exams and contraception management. The residents also have the opportunity to learn gynecologic procedures, including videoscopiccolposcopy, endometrial sampling and IUD insertion and removal at our gynecology clinic that is supervised by family medicine faculty.
Crozer Classroom Month
Crozer Classroom Month is a unique rotation during second year that covers the core principles of Family Medicine, including Evidence-Based Medicine, Population Health, Quality Improvement and Preventative Medicine.
Workshops give our residents hands-on experience for many procedures, including suturing, joint injections, splinting, nexplanon IUD insertion and removal, circumcision, endometrial biopsy, and colposcopy. Residents also have the opportunity to work on their scholarly projects during this month.
At Crozer, we strive to create an atmosphere that promotes resident wellness. PGY1, 2 and 3 support groups meet regularly throughout the year.
Faculty members join interns at Crozer for lunch once a month to provide support and discuss any concerns or questions. Our residency meets as a group three times a year to listen to resident feedback about our program and changes are often made in response to this feedback.
Our annual residency retreat is a chance for us to bond as a group outside the office. Residents also get a free membership to the Springfield YMCA, a state-of-the-art gym featuring a fitness floor, pool, basketball court, track and many group fitness classes.
Come Join Us!
Our goals are high, our resources are noteworthy, and our commitment to preparing our residents for a lifetime of learning and leadership is unshakeable! Come join us as we work together to lead you into family medicine’s future!
