It is important every day to remember why we chose to do this.  At the end of our career if we can look back on helping a person, and learning something, then that is a great life.

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.

At the end of each day, remember one person you helped, and one thing you learned.

Our Family Medicine Center provides care to a wonderful patient population rich in diversity (over 50% of our patients are of Hispanic, African American or Asian 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. Pediatricians who have privileges at Jefferson Abington Hospital and Nemours Children's Health supervise our inpatient pediatric rotations at Jefferson Abington Hospital.
