Family Medicine Residency

Spokane Residency Program

Family Medicine Residency Spokane is an unopposed Family Medicine Residency Program, located in downtown Spokane, Washington.

Since our inception in 1972, we have enjoyed an outstanding level of support from our geographic, medical and economic communities.

We offer the best of both worlds; a strong academic presence by the University of Washington, as well as an abundance of clinical opportunities within our community. We have a very stable practice, faculty and staff, which optimizes the education of our residents.

Our Commitment is to provide our residents with a comprehensive educational experience. We continually adapt our curriculum to prepare our graduates for not only the cognitive, but also the procedural demands of the well-trained contemporary family physician.
