Community Medicine

Our family medicine residents are involved in community activities throughout their residency program and are strongly encouraged to become engaged in the community where they live and work.  Many are able to continue volunteer activities they were involved in prior to residency, such as serving in food kitchens. 

During Overlook Family Medicine Community Medicine rotations, our residents participate in screenings and community education programs with Overlook's Community Health Department, have the opportunity to attend an AA meeting,  conduct health education programs at a local YMCA and may volunteer to participate in screenings and education programs at the site of Family Promise, an organization which supports homeless families, with which the residency partners. Senior residents will assume a primary care role and provide home care visits for selected elderly patients in the community with OFM Faculty attending, Christina Johnson MD, PhD, and provide hospice home visits for hospice patients under the leadership of Janice Baker, MD.
