“You’re not just filling a slot here,” says Christina Roosa, DO, (left), director of UB’s rural 1-2 family medicine residency, shown with resident Anh Phan, MD. “It’s a supportive environment. Everybody knows you personally and is dedicated to making sure our program reflects your needs and goals.”

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.

UB’s accredited rural residency in family medicine provides you with 8 months of urban training in a university setting followed by relocation to Olean to complete the remaining 28 months of unopposed rural training.

Discover how the experience will transform you into not only a highly skilled family practitioner, but a compassionate community health care leader.

Olean, NY, is home to one of the hardest-working rural residency programs in family medicine.

From intimate rural community practices to major urban medical centers, you’ll train in a variety of clinical sites, amassing wide-ranging experience along the way.
Our family medicine faculty will train you in the principles of research, providing you with the skills you need to develop and conduct evidence-based investigations and quality-improvement projects.
