“The mission of the Lawrence Family Medicine Residency is to create and nurture learning environments where physicians are inspired to develop expertise in Family Medicine and to dedicate themselves to the care of individuals, families and communities, especially those who are underserved.”
Created in 1994, the Lawrence Family Medicine Residency was the first Family Medicine Residency program sponsored by a community health center. Over the years we have attracted Residents who are interested in working in underserved communities, both nationally and abroad. To prepare Residents, our training combines rich and challenging clinical experiences with an academically rigorous curriculum. Our graduates are well trained to practice in underserved communities upon graduation (see our Alumni section, under Meet the Residents).
