Education and Training

Our department educates and trains physicians throughout their careers, from medical school to residency, fellowship and beyond.

Our family medicine residency program is the second oldest in the country, with a rich tradition of excellence that’s only matched by our steadfast commitment to prepare and inspire today’s residents to rise to tomorrow’s health care challenges.
A rural residency should not just train you; it should transform you. Find a deeper sense of purpose caring for medically underserved patients in New York State’s only rural 1-2 family medicine track.
At UB, we’ve set the standard for training in addiction medicine. Join our one-year fellowship program and see how you can make a profound impact on the lives of patients with substance use disorders.
Whether you strive to work in primary care or the pros, our one-year accredited fellowship gives you the skills you need to realize your goals.
Our post-doctoral program focuses on implementation science: the study of strategies and interventions designed to work in an everyday setting.
Our faculty play an active role in your predoctoral education, teaching you across all four years of medical school.

Our CME programs offer physicians and allied health care professionals continuous improvement opportunities in patient health care via evidence-based educational activities focusing on advances in medicine, new medical technology, biomedical research and changes in the health care environment.

Our online practice facilitator certificate program helps you enhance the delivery of health care through practice audits and feedback, staff training, infrastructure support and quality improvement initiatives.
The breadth and excellence of our teaching resources makes our department an outstanding place to advance your education and training.
