Residency Program Descriptions

As the birthplace of family medicine, Ohio long has recognized the importance of strong family medicine residency programs that prepare excellent family physicians to meet the challenges and ever-changing needs of patients. If you are considering the fun, diverse, and rewarding career of family medicine, consider our state’s many fine residency programs.

Ohio offers 38* family medicine residency programs with superior facilities and progressive clinical environments. While varied in format, each provides consistently, high quality training with dedicated faculty and resident staffs. Our residency programs are organized as affiliated networks around each of our medical schools and benefit by sharing diverse resources. There is wonderful collaboration and innovative faculty development within these networks. Ohio is fortunate to have strong departments of family medicine representing our specialty in each medical school. Ohio programs also benefit from the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians, which plays an important role in supporting residency education and encourages resident involvement in OAFP business through board and committee participation.

The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) publishes a Directory of Family Medicine Residency Programs that lists each family medicine residency program in the United States accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The directory covers many topics in detail including faculty, staff, administration, accreditation, size, and salaries.

We hope the program summaries below, provided by each respective residency program, stimulate your curiosity and prompt you to come and explore our many outstanding programs.

And, as you begin the process of discovering the best residency for you and preparing for the match process, check out the resources on the AAFP website.
