Letter from the Family Medicine Residency Program Director
Welcome. I am Dr. Stacy Ross, the Program Director of the Family Medicine Residency Program. Our program is relatively small, which allows us to give our Residents a uniquely personal and supportive educational experience. As someone who has spent their professional life in this community, I want to not only provide our Residents with the best medical education in Family Medicine possible but provide education to improve the health of this community.
I am particularly proud of our facility. it is a full-service Family Medicine clinic where our residents will learn as they treat patients from young to old and from simple to complex in their medical issues. Our residents gain experience in a variety of environments which include our inpatient Family Medicine service, a variety of private practitioners' outpatient offices in different specialties, emergency services unit, surgery services, as well as pediatrics and obstetrics.
Our didactic sessions, held on a weekly basis, include a full spectrum of medical topics. Guest speakers provide a diversity of information and views of medical treatment and practice. These sessions also include medical students on their family medicine rotations. We challenge our residents and students in these sessions and encourage dialogue and discussion. I have chosen to make our behavioral health and community health curriculum longitudinal so these topics are included in our didactic presentations. We also have a wellness curriculum, designed to encourage and support our Residents as they deal with the stresses and challenges of their training program.
Thank you for visiting our site. I hope you will see my vision for our program reflected in the information here. Training competent, ethical, and knowledgeable professionals who serve our citizens well is my goal and my passions.
Stacy Ross, MD
