Harlem Residency in Family Medicine Welcomes Its First Class of Eight Residents

The Institute for Family Health recently welcomed its first class of eight family medicine PGY1s to begin training in July 2012. The residents will be trained at the Family Health Center of Harlem, an EHR-equipped community health center located in the historic Manhattan neighborhood. The program is a federally-designated “Teaching Health Center,” designed to train residents to provide outstanding primary care to medically underserved patients of all ages. The residency is ACGME-accredited and is one of only a handful of health center-led residency programs in the nation. Beginning in 2013, residents will practice in a newly-constructed, state-of-the-art outpatient facility offering co-located dental, behavioral health and social services.
