Family Medicine Residency

Family Medicine Residency

The Broward Health/Nova Southeastern University Family Medicine Residency program is committed to producing outstanding primary care physicians that are skillfully trained to provide the highest quality of patient care. The goal of our program is to produce knowledgeable family practice physicians that are capable of providing efficient, compassionate, comprehensive, and culturally competent health care. The Broward Health/NSU Family Medicine Residency Program emphasizes the life long learning of interpersonal and professional skills, and good doctor-patient relationships. This program challenges each resident with the responsibility of managing a large, diverse in-patient and out-patient population, including a full spectrum of clinical disease states. Under the guidance of experienced and highly trained physicians, the residents’ fund of knowledge is enhanced and cultivated by exposure to diverse pathology, the latest in technology, and plenty of “hands on” experience. Graduates of this program are qualified to meet the health care challenges of the 21 century and prepared for a family medicine practice in virtually any environment.
