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.
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, will help you to transform your knowledge base into a life of extraordinary patient care.
A Strong Track Record
Our residents have gone on to have successful careers in rural, suburban and metro areas. Graduates can, and have, followed many paths:
- Fellows in a variety of medical specialties
- Emergency department physicians
- Osteopathic manipulation
- Urgent care
- Primary care
- 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.
A Balanced Program
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.
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 it is crucial. To encourage development of a holistic approach to life as physicians, residents are provided may resources, including psychologist-lead support groups, Ballint training, Guthrie’s fitness center and the support of staff and faculty who believe that physician wellness is as important as patient wellness.
