Family Medicine Residency Program

Welcome

Why Choose Wright State?
The Wright State University Family Medicine Residency Program continues its long standing commitment to community-based education. The residency combines a rich tradition of family medicine with exposure to:
  • a range of clinical services seldom found outside academic medical centers
  • a comprehensive variety of medical disciplines
  • a diverse patient population
  • an active inpatient service
  • continuity patients in the Five Rivers Family Health Center
  • faculty with expertise in sports medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, psychology, geriatrics, hospitalist practice and pharmacology.

The result is a unique blend: the services and attitudes seen at community hospitals, and the educational experiences often available only at university medical centers. The WSU Family Medicine Residency Program trains residents to excel in their roles as concerned, competent physicians who function well in the full realm of family medicine, whether in inpatient or outpatient, rural or urban settings.

Graduates of our program will achieve the following objectives:

  • technical competence in the diagnosis and treatment of a broad array of illnesses that constitute the majority of health visits to family physicians
  • growth as individuals in a professional and personal manner
  • experience with implementing the biopsychosocial model as a means to understanding and therefore treating the whole patient
  • ability to care for the individual and the family in a community-responsive manner

How to Apply

Applications for the residency program are being accepted through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). The residency is listed in ERAS as the Wright State University program in Dayton, Ohio. Students can link to the ERAS web site or check with the administrative offices of their medical schools for details.
