Our Private Practice Setting
As a resident of our program, you benefit from working in this private practice setting. You can develop a strong foundation in practice management and later become marketable graduates well versed in coding and billing as well as corporate practice financing.
Opened in 2015, Albany Family Medicine supports 31 exam rooms, 2 procedure rooms, assigned resident work stations, on-site laboratory , phlebotomy and a Pharmacy professor, as well as telemedicine capabilities. Here, residents of Albany Medical Center develop their own population of patients in family medicine and also see patients through urgent care, dermatologic procedural clinic, OMT and colposcopy clinics,and women’s reproductive health clinic.
Each family medicine resident establishes mentorship with a faculty member. This relationship helps develop an individualized guide to training. Residents and faculty typically participate in regularly scheduled social activities including trivia nights, bowling excursions, game nights, white water rafting and more. While COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to get a bit more creative with our team building, we are still committed to these activities to strengthen the personal relationship between medical student and mentor, supporting personal and professional growth.
Caring for Our Capital Region Community
Skilled faculty advisors provide professional and personal guidance for each resident. We teach residents how to teach, and we provide opportunities to join the faculty in research
The Capital Region is our home. We live here, work here, and our program extends outside the walls of the workplace into this community we love. Our family medicine residency program provides various opportunities to serve the Capital Region community. Recognizing the medical needs of the underserved, faculty, staff and medical students volunteer and provide educational opportunities to adolescents and adults through health fairs and community outreach in various settings.
