This commitment is supported by a team of expert physicians that can consult with you on virtually every type of medical condition and a philosophy that prevention and education are essential to overall wellness.
As full-time faculty at McGovern Medical School, our physicians serve as role models to medical residents and students in addition to being involved in teaching and research activities. Resident physicians are doctors who have completed medical school are continuing their three- to four-year specialty training. All of our residents are personally supervised by a faculty physician who reviews each case. Medical students also work in the clinic. If you are being seen by a medical student, you also will be seen by a faculty physician. If you are being seen by a resident, a faculty physician is always available and familiar with your case. By involving both the residents and medical students in patient care, you can be assured that your health needs are thoroughly reviewed and are used to teach the next generation of physicians.
