The Family Medicine Residency Program
Residents at Adventist Hinsdale Hospital enjoy the benefits of a single residency program. Residents experience 1-to-1 teaching and mentoring from all the hospital’s faculty and specialists, and are first-in-line for procedures and surgeries such as laceration repairs, intubations, central lines, cesarean sections, vaginal deliveries, and much more.
Hinsdale Family Medicine Center
Our program's unique outpatient office - the Hinsdale Family Medicine Center - is nestled across the street from Adventist Hinsdale Hospital. The building was originally a Seventh-day Adventist Church. In 1975, the church was renovated to function as the original office site for the residency program.
The office consists of 12 patient rooms, a newly renovated precepting room, an onsite lab, a procedure room for everything from mole excisions to LEEPs and a room for our D.O. residents to perform osteopathic manipulative treatments. The building also houses administration offices in the basement and ample room in the loft for academic conferences. Our loft also is home for our simulation lab.
Electronic Medical Records
All residents receive personal laptop computers for use during their training. EMR is used both in our hospital as well as in our outpatient office.
ACGME/AOA Dual Accreditation
Our program is fully dual-accredited for ACGME and AOA. The AOA Family Medicine Program has an affiliation agreement with Midwestern University/Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine, for post-graduate medical education. We encourage DO students to apply using the American Osteopathic Association/Resident match program to make sure that they will be eligible for certification.
*Resident salaries are reviewed annually to maintain competitiveness and reflect cost of living increases.
Comprehensive health, vision, and dental plans are offered to all residents and their families.
