Why This Program?
Cedar Rapids is a medical community like no other!
It is a city with two award-winning, top-100 hospitals and excellent community physicians. And it is in this setting that I first found CRMEF and that I soon afterwards found myself at CRMEF.
As a training family physician, it is easy for me to recognize the importance that a solid foundation will have on my career.
This foundation can only be made through meaningful experiences, and CRMEF is a program that has proved able to deliver these kinds of experiences for decades, whether through a newly renovated clinic with a powerful and well-established electronic medical record or through the careful guidance of knowledgeable, approachable faculty.
Even the community preceptors take an avid interest in passing on their wisdom. And all of this delivered in the context of an innovative p4 curriculum that emphasizes a solid exposure to clinic time, sub-electives and electives. All of this, and more—much more—attracted me to CRMEF.
I now feel part of a tight-knit group, with my fellow residents, my faculty members and this rich medical community. And out of this, I know I am being placed on a path to a rich and fulfilling career.
