Our Residents

The Central Washington Family Medicine Residency Program recruits a diverse group of resident physicians. These self-directed learners bring a wide range of experience, and interests to the residency program as well as divergent goals for future practice plans. Our residency demographic includes both Allopathic and Osteopathic residents, many of whom have a strong desire to serve rural and underserved urban patient populations on the West Coast.

Our Commitment to Excellence

Our program is committed to academic excellence as demonstrated by its affiliation with the nation’s #2 ranked University of Washington (UW) School of Medicine. Our residency is a member of the WWAMI Region Family Medicine Residency Network, a one-of-a-kind, multi-state medical education program designed to alleviate the shortages of healthcare programs in rural and underserved urban areas. The Network consists of thirty-one affiliated FM residency programs located within the WWAMI region – Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho.  We are also affiliated with one of the newest osteopathic medical schools, Pacific Northwest University of Health Sciences. CWFMR residents have access to UW resources, including the Health Sciences Library.

Our Chief Residents

The program is invested in training the leaders of tomorrow, and we provide our chiefs the resources and training they need to participate fully in this development process. CWFMR chiefs represent residents at all Residency Leadership meetings and act as liaison for resident suggestions and concerns. Examples of their many duties include: Chairing the Annual Program Review, and facilitating resident committee assignments and the Block Schedule formation. The Network also provides training and resources for all chief residents in its FM cohort. In addition to the AAFP’s Chief Resident Leadership Conference our chiefs also attend the WAAMI Network Chief Resident conference.

Three peer selected Chiefs are elected each year and typically consist of one Junior Chief, and two Senior Chiefs (normally includes a representative from Ellensburg).
