Family Medicine Residency - Bethlehem

GME family

At St. Lukeʼs Family Medicine Residency - Bethlehem, our mission is to prepare residents to practice collaborative, compassionate, comprehensive and continuous family medicine in a supportive community of inquiry. We take that mission seriously. We are proud of the 25-year history we have of educating full spectrum family physicians in the Lehigh Valley. We proudly care for our community and teach “the specialty where it matters that you know your patient’s name.” Come and see what makes our program an exceptional place to train!

As part of a university health system, you will be a valued member of a dedicated medical team nationally recognized for quality and innovation. Working and learning in our 454-bed University Hospital and our busy Family Medicine Center, you will receive a breadth and depth of education that you would expect to find in a major metropolitan area. Yet with only 6 residents per class and a ratio of 1 faculty to every 3 residents, you will become part of our family and never be just a number to us.

With a strong education in women’s health/OB and pediatrics, we will prepare you to be a comprehensive family physician. Our emphasis on resident wellness will provide you with a schedule and support that means you don't need to sacrifice your personal priorities.
