Family and Community Medicine


The Christ Hospital/University of Cincinnati Family Medicine Residency Program trains family physicians to work with all populations, including vulnerable communities: whether they may live across the world, or in our own back yard. Vulnerable populations are those patients who are economically, politically, culturally, ethnically, geographically or in any way marginalized.

We view health care as a multidisciplinary approach that takes into account all the determinants of health: social, environmental and physical. Our curriculum includes speakers from many disciplines: anthropology, nursing, dentistry, pediatrics, public health and psychiatry.

This framework allows us to address issues which face all populations, and prepares physicians to address health issues in whatever practice setting they find themselves.

Below is a general outline of each year of the program, but individual schedules may be subject to changes.
