Ellensburg Program Overview
The Central Washington Family Medicine Residency Program (CWFMR) is a 30 resident family medicine residency program and provides a rich learning experience.
Learn, serve, enjoy!
Six of the residents are based in Ellensburg for the majority of their training and provide much needed care to a rural population at our Community Health of Central Washington – Ellensburg clinic. Twenty four residents are based in Yakima for training and provide care to a diverse patient population at our Central Washington Family Medicine Clinic in Yakima.
Community Health of Central Washington, the program’s sponsor is a funded Teaching Health Center. As such residents learn to provide community based comprehensive and continuous ambulatory care to medically under-served patients representative of the cultural, socio-economic and demographic diversity of Central Washington. The program provides full spectrum Family Medicine training including OB, integrated behavioral health, osteopathic manipulation medicine, procedural training and inpatient pediatric and adult medicine.
Residents at the Ellensburg rural site have the opportunity to become valued members of the community through the services of the Federally Qualified Health Center, our resident continuity clinic. We schedule resident participation in community activities and provide an incentive for volunteerism to promote strong community engagement.
