GHC Colin Fields I chose Group Health Cooperative because it is an innovative medical delivery system in a part of the country that understands the importance of primary care. GHC has always been a visionary system for Family Medicine and is a leader in the use of the Medical Home model, emphasizing collaborative multidisciplinary care together with an integrated electronic medical record. During my tenure, I've enjoyed the scope of practice at Group Health Family Medicine Residency in which emphasis is placed on comprehensive outpatient care. There is camaraderie among the residents, the faculty, the administration, and the support staff. It is truly an excellent place to train.
