Family Medicine Residency Program

Program Overview

Welcome to the University of Maryland Family Medicine Residency Program!

Thank you for your interest in our program. We are excited to be starting another interview season. Our residency has been around for over 30 years and we now have nearly 400 graduates practicing and teaching across the country. Our department’s main objective is to provide superior teaching and training for residents, and to prepare them for any type of career in family medicine. We are located at an Academic Medical Center in the heart of Baltimore City, which provides great opportunities for residents with special interests in urban health. We offer rotations in both opposed and unopposed locations, taking advantage of opportunities at the University of Maryland Medical Center as well as other regional locations such as Baltimore-Washington Medical Center and Children’s National Medical Center. We have leaders in Sports Medicine as well as the RHEDI program, and have several family medicine faculty who provide obstetrical care.

We care for our OB, pediatric, and adult medicine patients who need hospitalization on the Family Medicine Inpatient Service at the University of Maryland Medical Center, which is run entirely by our residents and faculty. The University of Maryland Medical Center, with its extensive academic and clinical expertise, is utilized for our training in Emergency Medicine, and for a portion of the education in Obstetrics and Pediatrics. We receive a strong inpatient Pediatrics experience at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington DC. We also have additional training in Pediatrics, Internal Medicine, ICU, and Geriatrics at the unopposed Baltimore-Washington Medical Center. Located in the county 20 minutes outside of Baltimore City, we get exposed to experts in Private Practice, while treating a more Suburban patient population. Surgical sub-specialties are 1:1 with the specialists, in both academic and private practice settings. We believe we offer a variety of hospital experiences that will best prepare you for practice.

The core of the curriculum occurs at University Family Medicine(UFM), our combined resident and faculty outpatient practice. Here we help you integrate behavioral science and specialty skills with comprehensive patient management. Training in colposcopy, endometrial biopsy and minor office surgical procedures occurs at UFM.

Our program is structured so that you're able to meet established educational goals within three years. In the first year, the curriculum emphasizes experiences in an array of in-patient settings. As you progress, more time is allocated to the comprehensive and continuous experiences of UFM. Electives are chosen to complement your skills, providing you with a well-rounded clinical education. We are proud of our program and excited to share more about it with you. If you have additional questions please email our Program Coordinator, Valerie Liner at
