Abington Family Medicine
Residency Program

The dedicated residents and faculty of Abington Family Medicine are proud of the differences we make in our community and our contributions to medical literature and education.

Our state-of-the-art Family Medicine Center provides care to a wonderful patient population rich in diversity (over one half of our patients are of Hispanic, African American or Korean heritage), age (20% pediatrics), and socioeconomic status (over 45% have medical assistance or are uninsured). Residents learn evidence-based care and procedures in an environment that enthusiastically supports individual interests through international and regional electives, academic opportunities and a faculty, hospital and medical staff renowned for excellence in patient care and teaching. Specialty tracks exist for sports medicine, geriatrics and women’s health. Our inpatient pediatric rotations at Abington Hospital – Jefferson Health are supervised by pediatricians who have privileges at Abington Hospital and Nemours duPont Pediatrics.

Abington Hospital is located four miles from the Philadelphia border and eleven miles from Center City and has been recognized with numerous national awards for patient safety and quality of care. The hospital has a rich history of commitment to resident and student medical education and has free-standing residencies in family medicine, internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, and dentistry. Our Family Medicine Residency graduates have a 99% first time pass rate on the ABFM Boards and practice in rural, suburban, urban, military, National Health Service, sports medicine and academic settings throughout the country.
