Located on the campus of Utah Valley Regional Medical Center in Provo, Utah, the residency program is based at the Merrill Gappmayer Family Medicine Center.

Physicians at the center are first- through third-year resident doctors who are supervised by a faculty of board certified family medicine physicians and specialists who emphasize ambulatory care, preventive medicine, and wellness.

  • Full-spectrum medicine in outpatient settings
  • Patient care teams
  • Integrated health system
  • State-of-the-art technologies
  • Electronic medical record system

We emphasize ambulatory care and give our residents comprehensive training to prepare them for any practice style.

The Partnership Model of Residency

We have developed the Partnership Model of Residency Education based on the principle that we learn best by doing. A family medicine resident will best learn to practice medicine by actually practicing family medicine. This is not limited to simply writing orders, admitting patients to the hospital, and seeing patients at the Family Medicine Center.

Residents as Partners

Residents learn to function as a partner in preparation for future opportunities in clinical practice. Clinic management, appropriate billing practice and flexibility in your schedule are part of the learning experience. As family practitioners, we function as partners in a healthcare delivery system and also as business partners.

Our residents are expected to fully participate as a junior partner in our group practice. This means sharing in clinical responsibilities and making business decisions based on majority vote within the program.
