About the Program

Family Medicine Residents.

The Carilion Clinic-VTC Family Medicine Residency is dually-accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians (ACOFP). We offer a three-year program in allopathic and osteopathic Family Medicine.

Osteopathic residents have the option of being dually board-certified by the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians and the American Board of Family Medicine at the end of their three years of training. We do not offer an osteopathic rotating internship.

By integrating our residency curriculum with osteopathic manipulative therapy (OMT), we have a strong our musculoskeletal curriculum for our family medicine residents. Musculoskeletal problems account for 30 percent of family medicine visits, and osteopathic skills can be invaluable in conditions such as back pain and sports medicine injuries.

Outpatient Care

Residents and faculty members' clinical practices are located in one of our two NCQA-recognized Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home offices. At each center we have a social worker, licensed professional counselor, psychologist, dietician, care coordinators, on-site pharmacists and highly-skilled nurses, many of whom are involved in research or specialty procedures.

Each center is equipped with on-site laboratory services, OB ultrasound, minor procedure rooms, and an OMT room. Each office and exam room has a computer for access to our electronic medical record system, digitized hospital x-rays and all library services.

We offer family-centered prenatal care, minor surgery, and training in procedures such as colposcopy, spirometry, and ultrasonography. We have recently developed a Procedures Clinic at each of our sites for skin, joint and gynecological procedures.
