Located on the First Hill Campus of Swedish Medical Center, the residency is a pioneer Family Medicine program, established in 1970, one year after “family practice” became a distinct specialty in the United States. From its beginnings, Swedish Family Medicine Residency - First Hill has remained dedicated to our goal of providing the best educational environment to enable residents to achieve their full potential as family medicine physicians, and to be at the forefront of the evolution of the scope of Family Medicine.
Our mission is to prepare physicians to be leaders in the practice of comprehensive, compassionate family medicine of the highest quality.
Our vision is to be recognized nationally as a program noted for its leadership training, its innovative and humane approaches to resident education and patient care, and its commitment to patient-centered, evidence-based, community-oriented family medicine
With a full complement of faculty, clinic staff, and support personnel, we have the capacity to train thirty-three (33) residents over the course of three (3) post-graduate years, and accommodate medical student clerkships and sub-internships. We also offer a variety of specialty clinics and didactics, and opportunities to work with a variety of clinic instructors and clinic locations.
