There’s no shortage of interesting cases in our
residency’s original track, where you’ll benefit from
our approachable faculty and our dedication to the community.
As a resident on the urban/Jefferson track, your continuity
outpatient training takes place at Jefferson
Family Medicine Center. At this nationally recognized
patient-centered medical home you’ll see the full spectrum of
health problems — including less common diagnoses —
among underserved patients across the lifespan.
Supervised by our faculty, you’ll follow a panel of
families and spend an increasing amount of time here as your
residency progresses. The majority of our patients are low-income,
African-American residents of the city’s East Side.
While you train at our family medicine center, we’ll provide you with as much or as little procedure time as you desire.
Our faculty are actively engaged in a variety of research projects, and we’ll make every effort to connect you with a mentor whose research aligns with your interests.
Some of our recent projects have focused on:
When the outpatients patients you see are admitted, you’ll
care for them at Buffalo
General Medical Center, a 500-bed hospital on the Buffalo
Niagara Medical Campus.
Supervised by our faculty, you’ll manage your patients on multiple floors, developing a solid relationship with a variety of specialists.
As with your family medicine center experience, you can perform as many or as few procedures as you desire. Common procedures you may perform include:
In addition to our patients admitted from Jefferson Family
Medicine Center, we care for the first two unreferred patients
admitted to Buffalo General each day.
When your patients need long-term nursing or subacute care, you’ll see them at HighPointe on Michigan, a nursing care facility adjacent to the hospital.
You’ll take care of your newborn, pediatric and prenatal
inpatients at Women
and Children’s Hospital of Buffalo.
Your inpatient service rotation at Buffalo General accounts for 12 weeks of your PGY-1 year and 16 weeks of your second and third years.
Each of our residency tracks has a separate match number. You
may rank each separately when you apply
to our program through ERAS.
We accept five residents into the urban/Jefferson track annually.
In addition, the two residents we accept into the rural
track spend their first year of training with us.
