Marquette Family Medicine Residency Program & Geriatrics Fellowship
A dually accredited ACGME / AOA program
Each year of the Marquette General Hospital Family Medicine Residency is divided into 13 four week blocks. Through a combination of required and elective rotations, a resident gains a broad-based education in all medical specialty areas. Marquette General is used for most inpatient rotations, while significant time is spent at Peninsula Medical with community physicians for the outpatient rotations. Time may be individually arranged elsewhere to meet special requests or needs, and rural family medicine electives in the Upper Peninsula are strongly encouraged and supported.

Design for Success
First year residents start their training with a four week introduction to residency. This rotation is designed with hands-on experiences to prepare new residents for the predictable, but critical, care situations they will soon face. Residents are guided to develop a relationship with health care team members and learn how the team most effectively works together to provide excellent patient care in the hospital and in the Family Medicine Center.
Visits to community support agencies, hands on review of examinations skills, and coaching with hospital information systems all actively prepare residents for their new role.
At MGH we are proud of our rural training. Over 90% of our graduates are practicing in federally designated rural areas.
To improve resident rural experience, second-year residents do a one-month rural rotation in one of many rural communities. The rural months are enhanced by the resident using telecommunication technology to see continuity patients. The resident stays in the rural community and connect with patients that are at our family medicine clinic in Marquette. This experience is also offered to any residents who want to do a rural family medicine elective.
