We believe that your Residency—your first job as a Physician!—should prepare you for how you want to practice Family Medicine, and should give you a broad range of career options.
In addition to choosing to practice in single or group Family Practices in rural, suburban, or metro locations, our residents have been selected for Fellowships in a variety of medical specialties, have elected to work as hospitalists or emergency department physicians, have focused their practice on osteopathic manipulative treatment, and have chosen to become teaching physicians. Many graduates have stayed within the Guthrie network, some in our own Residency practice; others in one of Guthrie’s many satellite offices.
We believe that compassion, rapport, and humor are as crucial to Family Medicine as are the application of medical knowledge and procedural expertise; we believe that learning should happen in a safe and supportive environment.
Medical School gave you the foundation. Working with our exceptional Family Practice Teaching Physicians, each of whom has a devoted patient following, and are passionate about teaching and encouraging new physicians. This will help you to transform your knowledge base into a life of extraordinary patient care.
We believe that wellness and balance in life should be practiced and encouraged, starting in your Residency.
Ask any physician, taking time for yourself, your health, your friends, family and your other interests is an ongoing challenge, but is crucial. To encourage development of a holistic approach to life as Physicians, Residents are provided may resources which include psychologist-lead support groups, Ballint training, Guthrie’s Fitness Center, the natural resources of the Fingerlakes, and the support of staff and faculty who believe that Physician wellness is as important as patient wellness.
