Full-spectrum Training

Physician with patient

At Iowa, you’ll care for patients in hospital intensive care settings, in busy emergency treatment areas, and in labor and delivery suites.

That’s in addition to the panel of patients you’ll care for during all three years of your residency in our Family Medicine Clinic.

We call it full-spectrum training—something you’ll only find at a center like Iowa, which values primary care as a foundation for comprehensive specialty care.

Part of your training may include specializing in a specific practice area. We offer “tracks” in geriatrics, sports medicine and global health. 

An Advisor’s Guidance

Each of our faculty members is committed to the success of our residents. Some have elected to serve as formal advisors, meeting regularly with residents and helping them balance the demands of residency, begin choosing a career path, and address the needs of life outside the hospital.
