I chose UIHC because I believe I will get just the right mix of great training by experienced faculty, advantages of being a large university setting with opportunities to see a variety of pathologies and disease processes, and also the opportunity to live in a vibrant college town.
I chose this field because I love the concept of care continuity in the prevention of disease and the management of acute and chronic illness. It's also just plain fun! The UI Family Medicine Residency Program is providing me with excellent training opportunities so that I can practice medicine the way I've always wanted to, all in a wonderful Mid-west community that is perfect for my family!
Family Medicine at the University of Iowa is a great, family friendly
program filled with residents who support each other and have fun
together guided by faculty who are dedicated to patient care and resident
development as physicians. Plus we're in Iowa City which provides plenty
of big city amenities in a small town atmosphere and is a great place to
raise kids. I can't imagine having gone anywhere else!
Many residency programs sell the accolades of individual staff to demonstrate their resources. I chose to join Family Medicine at the University of Iowa because it was the only program that demonstrated a support system for their residents to accomplish their own accolades. While our staff here has national notoriety, it’s the culture they've created that lends itself to our track record of success.
From the moment I stepped on campus during my interview day, I felt that I was at home. This was exemplified by the warm welcome I received from the staff and residents. This family medicine program is special because it has all the benefits of training at an academic hospital with endless support to help each of us discover our individual path as a physician.
As a medical student at Iowa, I got to work on inpatient and outpatient teams in the family medicine department. No other program measured up to the great resident support and education I experienced at Iowa!
At first, I was worried about the small size of Iowa City, but there is really everything you need here! Lots of great restaurants, tons of local festivals and fun things to do, and very efficient public transportation.
I am so excited to be at UIHC, a hospital that serves both serves a large rural population, and offers the learning benefits of an outstanding academic hospital.
I chose University of Iowa Family Medicine because I want to train in an excellent academic center that is dedicated to the practice of evidence-based medicine. The faculty are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about what they do, and the residents are all very fun and supportive of each other. Iowa City is also a wonderful place to live, with something for everybody to enjoy!
