Curriculum

Over the next three years, Skagit Regional Health will gradually sunset the Family Medicine Residency program, supporting the program fully until all current Family Medicine residents have completed training and are board eligible. Skagit Regional Health is no longer recruiting Family Medicine Residents. 
The decision to sunset the Family Medicine Residency program was made after careful consideration, following ongoing challenges meeting the requirements necessary to transition the Family Medicine program from an American Osteopathic Association (AOA) certification to an Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) certification. All AOA programs are required to transition to ACGME within the next two years. Read more.

Overall Goal for Well-Rounded FM Physicians

Training ClassOur curriculum is designed so that each resident will satisfy all the certification requirements of ACGME. This curriculum promotes learning via structure and supervised exposure based on an educational rather than a service model. Supervision and mentoring are hallmarks of the program, with the residents given additional responsibilities and opportunities as their training and experience warrants. Evaluation is integrated and organized throughout the training. On-call is limited and designed to provide the specific training required of a family physician.
