Our Program Aims

Aims of the University of Iowa Family Medicine Residency Program

These principles drive our educational mission.

We seek to:

  • Train residents to provide comprehensive, compassionate care to a broad range of patients for the treatment of health problems and the promotion of health.
  • Develop physicians capable of achieving the triple aim: better patient care, improved population health, and lower health care costs.
  • Provide the breadth of family medicine training to practice in any setting—rural or urban; multi-specialty or solo practice; inpatient, outpatient, obstetrics, pediatrics, urgent/emergent care; academic or private practice.
  • Be recognized nationally for family medicine resident education.
  • Develop the next generation of family medicine leaders.
