Our residency program leads various specialty clinics throughout the month. These clinics are held at Our Medical Home, the Center for Family Health, and are led by our Family Medicine Faculty and partnering specialists. This gives our patients the opportunity to receive specialized care at their primary care office and offers our residents a true full spectrum experience. Our specialty clinics include:
Medication Assisted Therapy: Over the last few years, our residents and faculty have developed a growing enthusiasm for providing addiction medicine services within primary care. Our Crozer Family Medicine residents receive high quality training in addiction medicine throughout their three years in the program. Our Center for Family Health in Springfield provides medication assisted treatment for opiate use disorder and alcohol use disorder with buprenorphine-naloxone and extended release naltrexone. Our MAT program is supported by our embedded behavioral health team, consisting of a clinical psychologist as well as psychology and social work students.
Our residents rotate through our Medication Assisted Treatment Clinic, which occurs twice weekly at our office in Springfield. This clinic is overseen by family medicine faculty, experienced in addiction medicine and medication assisted treatment. All residents take the 8 hour waiver training course, required to become a fully waivered physician during protected lecture time in their second year. Our residents also have the opportunity to gain experience working with addiction psychiatrists during their behavioral health rotations at Crozer’s Recovery Center. We look forward to continuing to expand this curriculum and serve our community.
Sports Medicine: Led by our Sports Medicine Faculty biweekly, residents diagnose and treat a variety of musculoskeletal pathologies. Residents are exposed to diagnostic and procedural point-of-care ultrasound and are familiarized with various types of intra-articular injections.
Dermatology: Led by both our partnering Dermatologists and Family Medicine faculty monthly, residents diagnose and treat a multitude of dermatological abnormalities. Residents take a true hands on experience and are exposed to a variety of procedures such as shave biopsies, punch biopsies, and cryotherapy.
Gynecology: Led by our Family Medicine faculty monthly, residents diagnose and treat a variety of gynecological issues. Residents become accustomed to numerous gynecological procedures such as intrauterine device insertions/removals, nexplanon insertions/removals, and colposcopies.
Psychiatry: Led by our partnering Psychiatrists monthly, residents evaluate and treat a multitude of psychiatric conditions. Residents familiarize themselves with psychotherapy along with the intricacies of psychiatric medication management.
