Current residents talk about why they chose Group Health's program.
"Why I chose Group Health: It is a system that works EMR, patient-centered, strong evidence-based medicine. The people here are really nice and seem confident. What I like about Group Health: Very supportive, always trying to improve/open to feedback, everyone seems happy to be here!"
Amanda Brender, Class of 2013
"I like Group Health because the program puts women's health as a priority. As a family physician here, I am trained to provide routine GYN case, deliver babies and perform for terminations without ever having to leave our facility. Oh, and the other residents are great!"
Jennifer Klein, Class of 2013
"I chose Group Health because it is a small, unopposed program in an urban setting, the faculty is very supportive, and it is housed in an HMO where I can learn how to work up and medically manage patients. I enjoy the medical home and the ability to manage my patients as a PCP but with the support/accessibility of many specialists. Finally, family medicine is well-understood in the Pacific Northwest, and SEATTLE ROCKS!"
Colin Fields, Class of 2013
"Group Health is an amazing place to do residency. We have the opportunity to train in the setting of a small unopposed program in a large urban environment. We have outstanding faculty that love to teach and a wonderful system that really emphasizes quality primary care. Plus, it's in Seattle which is a great city for family medicine in general!"
Dominic Femiano, Class of 2014
"Group Health has felt like home since day one. Everyone has been so supportive, from the faculty to the admin behind the scenes. However, you are also afforded a lot of room for independent thinking and decision making; working as the sole resident on labor and delivery to working one-on-one with attendings during the third month of medicine. It's been an amazing intern year, and I can't wait to see what's in store coming up!"
Matthew Parker, Class of 2014
"Group Health is an amazing residency program for so many reasons. From the phenomenal program director to the incredibly knowledgeable and supportive staff to the well-established medical home in which residents train, I do not think there is a better family medicine residency program out there. I love the program's emphasis on efficiency, practicing evidence-based medicine, empowering patients through use of the electronic medical record, and structuring rotations to maximize learning. Group Health Cooperative is a place where both patients and providers are satisfied and happy!"
Chandra Maloney, Class of 2015
"I was thrilled to discover that Group Health's program had everything I was looking for: supportive and kind faculty, welcoming residents that I could easily imagine befriending, and strong training in women's health/obstetrics. Plus I loved their passion regarding the patient-centered medical home, for evidence-based practice, and toward health and wellness rather than just treating illness all of which helped cement how unique and forward-thinking Group Health really is!"
