For more than 80 years, Broadlawns Medical Center has focused on a mission of providing quality health care to all patients regardless of their ability to pay. Also central to our mission is our commitment to train tomorrow's health care providers and leaders.
Broadlawns has a history of training residents that spans more than 60 years. In 1971 Broadlawns established itself as a leader in family medicine training with one of the first fully accredited Family Medicine Residency programs in the Midwest. This program provides three years of comprehensive training in family medicine with positions for 24 resident physicians. Broadlawns also offers a transitional year program for four resident physicians who desire a comprehensive year of training prior to entering another specialty.
Curriculums for both programs are designed to meet all requirements of the residency review committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
Broadlawns Medical Center is the largest publicly funded hospital in Iowa and provides a unique and rewarding environment for learning. Residents in our programs experience a variety of illnesses and health care issues that are not common to most programs. The teaching faculty at our program are firmly committed to the mission of teaching and "caring for our community."
Our graduates leave here as well-rounded, competently trained physicians and leaders who are prepared to meet the challenges of a rapidly changing health care environment.
It is a privilege to work at Broadlawns Medical Center, and all of us associated with the Family Medicine Residency and Transitional Year Programs look forward to continuing our tradition of excellence.
