What Makes Us, Us
The future of Family Medicine is already here in Cedar Rapids!
Back in 2007, the Cedar Rapids Family Medicine Residency was chosen one of just 14 p4 programs nationwide—and the only one in Iowa—further acknowledging what had been true since the program was founded in 1971: that CRMEF leads the way in the training of tomorrow’s family physicians.
Ours remains a community-based program, underscoring our commitment to the concept of the Patient-Centered Medical Home.
Moreover, our medical home is now, not just a community health center, a Federally Qualified Health Center, one which allows our residents to care for the needs of both rural and urban underserved populations, but also a Level 3 PCMH. In addition, we have long made technology a tool here, the better to optimize resident training and to maximize patient care, the better to solidify the role of Iowa’s oldest Family Medicine residency as one of Iowa’s most innovative Family Medicine residencies.
