The Mid-Hudson Family Medicine Residency Program was established in 1979 to address the shortage of primary care physicians in the Mid-Hudson Region.  We have done our job well, having trained and graduated more than 160 family physicians, many of whom remain in our community serving as teachers and role models.

We offer 10 positions through the match each year to engage in a curriculum emphasizing self-directed learning in the context of the new model of Family Medicine.  One of the first recognized Teaching Health Center Programs in the country, our program is based at the Institute for Family Health, a federally qualified health center (FQHC), which enables us to care for the medically underserved population and to provide a full spectrum of health services for the community.  Our residency program builds on the comprehensiveness of family medicine with an emphasis on the particular needs of our diverse and multicultural patient population. We also pride ourselves on involvement within the community where we work and live.

Our primary ambulatory training site holds Level 3 PCMH recognition from NCQA and Joint Commission accreditation, with special recognition for meaningful use of health information technology.  Our Epic EHR system allows secure provider access from any location; and, there is a patient access portal, permitting direct messaging between patients and doctors.  Didactic opportunities abound, with a robust conference schedule and many local, regional and national opportunities to both learn and present current medical knowledge.  We provide the tools, structure and supervised patient care opportunities to maximize your learning and skill acquisition.  Our graduates are extremely well-trained to successfully gain employment across the family medicine spectrum including outpatient, inpatient and emergency department settings. In addition to our well-rounded training, which includes obstetrics, we have a strong emphasis on behavioral health. We are welcoming our first behavioral health fellow in 2018. All of our graduates are educated and most feel comfortable with providing office based medication assisted treatment to combat the opioid crisis. Faculty in our program also have particular interests in Hepatitis C treatment as well as LGBTQ affirming care.

You will have the chance to enter a thriving community hospital environment. Our residents and medical students are the focus of teaching – we are the only medical residency program in Kingston. We  work closely with our hospital partners towards changing the health care delivery system in Kingston and beyond.  We work together as a team and feel like a family.

I joined the faculty of the Mid-Hudson Residency program in 2005 in order to provide excellent health care and continuously improve health care delivery systems in the Mid-Hudson region.  I am committed to the mission and to making sure that all patients are treated, regardless of their ability to pay or their marginalized status. In addition, I believe that our relationship with the Institute for Family Health and our two sister residency programs in New York City offers our residents unique opportunities to more fully develop the skills expected of family physicians in the 21st century.

We welcome all prospective MD and DO applicants and students to visit us and to explore our program. We love what we do and invite you to join us.
