The ACGME-accredited Trios Family Medicine Residency Program is part of the WWAMI Family Medicine Residency Network and is committed to training well-rounded family physicians equipped to provide compassionate, patient-centered care. The 36 month program includes both inpatient and outpatient experiences, often one-on-one with the teaching physician.
Trios Health Family Medicine Residency clinic is a “clinic first” clinic whereby the residents continuity clinic comes first when scheduling learning experiences within the program. The residents know what day or days they will have clinic all year long, with little exception. It is the heart of the training program for our residents. The clinic provides a learning environment that embraces evidence-based medicine, formative feedback, and opportunities to gain hands-on procedure skills and supervised OMT development. Residents will be given increasing patient care responsibilities commensurate with their level of knowledge and skill in all clinical aspects.
