Amber Fedin, DO

Interim Program Director

The Family Medicine Residency Program offers residents an excellent education in traditional family medicine.  Our innovative program is the ideal educational experience for those seeking to serve their patients and community in the practice of medicine.  
Residents benefit from a robust inpatient teaching experience highlighted with hospitalist and ICU faculty who are passionate about patient care, quality measures and teaching.  In the outpatient setting, residents practice in a continuity care clinic which services much of the surrounding community.  This clinic boasts excellent family medicine preceptors who teach residents about common outpatient conditions, procedures, and high quality care.  Residents also learn to navigate the complexities of the healthcare system and how to serve both insured and uninsured patient populations that benefit from the residency clinic services.   
First-class didactic programming and rotational experiences combine into a curriculum that covers the full spectrum of family medicine in a practical way to prepare for future practice and board exams.  We are proud to train superb family physicians who are dedicated to the communities and patients they serve.
