Family Medicine Residency
We will be Accepting Residents in 2015!
Thank you for visiting the Kadlec Family Medicine Residency website. The selection of a residency program is one of the most critical decisions you make during your medical training and I am thrilled you are considering spending this important time here in the Tri-Cities. We are a new residency accepting applications in fall 2014, with the first six residents starting summer 2015. We are affiliated with the University of Washington, WWAMI Family Medicine Network, and are dedicated to providing a quality and innovative residency training in a setting that is friendly, warm, and supportive. Kadlec Regional Medical Center has a long tradition of training students who go on to achieve success and become instrumental leaders in a variety of healthcare careers.
Our community is ideally situated between three major rivers: the Columbia River, Snake River, and Yakima River, in an area rich with cultural and recreational activities for adults and children of all ages. The area is known for having the highest number of PHDs per capita nationwide. This area allows us to attract top-notch faculty who are trained at some of the most prestigious academic institutions in the world. Our faculty is dedicated to the mission of teaching residents and medical students, evidence-based, patient-centered care. We strongly believe that teaching the “doctors of tomorrow” is a special calling that must be approached with care and dedication.
In addition to an extraordinary faculty, the Kadlec Family Medicine Residency will be providing all residents with individualized training and mentoring so that they can pursue their highest aspirations as family medicine physicians. Our Pediatric and Adult Hospitalists will be a valuable part of providing a model for integrating hospitalists and residents in a way that dramatically improves both inpatient care and residents’ educational outcomes. In our Intensive Care unit, residents will work with award-winning, nationally recognized teams, and will be exposed to cutting-edge medicine, and participate in multiple clinically-relevant quality improvement projects. In addition, our primary family medicine clinic training will take place in a free-standing, outpatient family medicine center. There will be rotations out to several specialty ambulatory care areas.
As the sponsoring medical center, we are strongly connected to the diverse community we serve and reach out beyond the walls of the hospital to positively affect patients in our region. We offer a wonderful training experience and hope that you will consider Kadlec as the way to foster your love, passion, commitment, and excitement for family medicine.
