Why Choose Family Medicine at Grant Medical Center
Our residency program is designed to bring you up to speed smoothly, with guidance from the best minds in the field.
Build Knowledge and Expertise
We are a community-based family medicine residency providing experience in a large, urban hospital with access to extensive specialty care.
Residents in our three-year, ACGME-approved program are exposed to a wide range of clinical encounters and have the opportunity to serve a diverse patient population. You will begin managing your own patients during your intern year and have autonomy with support in decision-making. We offer a robust outpatient program, an active inpatient and obstetrics presence, and training in a wide variety of procedures. At the heart of our curriculum is an emphasis on continuity of care, resident wellness and scope of practice.
Training to Follow Your Passion
You will be encouraged to pursue your various interests and future goals, while obtaining the skills needed to provide meaningful, culturally humble care to the communities you serve.
- Diversity and Inclusion
We are committed to recruiting diverse residents and faculty, and ensuring an inclusive environment where our residents can thrive. Everyone at OhioHealth is expected to embrace our differences, listen to one another, and build an environment that is welcoming and supportive for all. We believe each new perspective makes us stronger, and that, together, we can make this residency and our community a better place.
Our residents and faculty serve on Diversity and Inclusion committees at department, hospital and system levels. They contribute to and advocate for local and national practice changes that promote diversity and inclusion. We have open discussions about systemic oppression, privilege, cultural humility and racism.

- Resident Wellness
Our residents and faculty value and prioritize wellness. Interns have a rotation dedicated to wellness, residents receive dedicated lectures and time for wellness, and we’ve built a culture of supporting each other through vulnerability and growth. This is maintained through longitudinal activities, including residency Schwartz rounds, support groups, advisor and mentor relationships, and the general kindness our residents and faculty show each other at and outside of work.
