Graduate Medical Education

Primary Care


St. Luke’s University Health Network with its network of 10 acute care hospitals and more than 60 primary care practices actively recruits its graduates to enter primary care. During training, residents interested in primary care may elect to do their entire third year continuity clinic in a faculty run practice. Here residents provide preventive care, diagnose and manage acute and chronic medical illnesses and provide transition of care visits (i.e. post-hospital follow-up) as well as Medicare Wellness visits. The resident also learns about the business aspects of practice and several office based procedures.

“St. Lukes, from the very beginning, was a forward thinking organization that gave me all the tools I needed to succeed after residency. You are given access to the best available technology, staff, specialty providers, and ultimately a culture where the overwhelming goal is to provide exceptional patient care. It was an easy choice to stay with St. Luke’s after completing residency and my practice has been thriving thanks to their support.”

“Prior to starting residency, I was certain that I wanted to do something where I would be challenged by patients daily but be able to grow with them throughout my career. Through St. Luke’s and its program, I learned that a career in outpatient Internal Medicine was the right choice for me. I am thankful for the all the knowledge gained through my time as a resident, as well as the opportunity to do rotations on the outpatient side to really solidify the decision. Looking back, I know I made the right choice.”
