Hunterdon Family Medicine Residency trains family medicine physicians to provide compassionate and exceptional care that improves the health of their patients, their patients’ families, and the communities they serve.
The Hunterdon Health was designed around the belief that every person needs a Family Doctor.
We train family physicians to provide comprehensive care for patients of all ages and their community through mentorship, hands-on training, and outstanding didactic teaching in an environment which fosters collaboration, intellectual curiosity, and evidence-based medicine while attending to the biopsychosocial needs of the patient.
The Hunterdon Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program educates residents utilizing the values and precepts which are fundamental to the way medicine is practiced by family physicians in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, so that they themselves may graduate as family physicians who can provide this model of exemplary primary care to their patients, their patients’ families and the communities which they serve.
Because of the respect that family medicine enjoys in Hunterdon County, residents have a unique opportunity to see how effective a family physician can be. Every facet of Hunterdon’s integrated delivery system is utilized to enhance the resident’s understanding of the full impact of family practice in this country. Our mission allows us to move toward our ultimate vision in family medicine education. This vision is to create a humanistic and compassionate form of education which models completely the humanism and compassion that we teach in the doctor-patient relationship.
