Family Medicine Residency Program

Welcome - A Letter from Our Program Director, Tamer Said MD

Thank you for your interest in the University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center's Family Medicine Residency Program. Our three-year residency program is located in the heart of Cleveland, Ohio, close to Case Western Reserve University in University Circle and near Cleveland's major cultural institutions. Our residency program is the affiliate of the Case Western Reserve University Department of Family Medicine and Community Health.

Our mission is to train and educate family physician leaders with the tools to succeed across the spectrum of family medicine, and with a special focus on caring for underserved patients and communities. Our training emphasizes excellence in the care of complex and medically vulnerable patients, development of critical thinking skills and medical decision making, acquisition of primary care centered procedural skills, and professional development in an environment that promotes life-long learning.

Our program offers the opportunity to care for a diverse patient population in a variety of circumstances, promoting teamwork, leadership, and a commitment to both prevention and healing of illness and disease. Our faculty are dedicated to teaching our residents so that they graduate confident in their ability to provide high quality clinical care as they forge a satisfying and durable medical career in the field of family medicine and community health.

During their three years of training, our residents meet milestones in their education and professional growth as their knowledge and wisdom evolves. Our residents participate in formal didactic programs, but more importantly, learn how to expand knowledge in a variety of clinical contexts using an array of resources.

Our program offers diverse experiences beyond the clinic that encourage residents to discover their interests and talents. With regard to research, our department is one of the most productive and varied family medicine research divisions nationally.

We look forward to meeting you as you follow your path to an exciting and satisfying career in family medicine. All the best on your journey to your future career!
