Family Medicine Residency

Broadlawns Medical Center is a nonprofit healthcare organization that ensures the Polk County community has access to high quality, cost-effective healthcare.  In 2024, Broadlawns celebrates its 100th year anniversary. Broadlawns has roots in education throughout its history from its first nursing class graduation in 1921, to one of the Midwest’s first full accredited Family Medicine programs in 1971.

The county hospital setting is generally recognized as providing the most varied, hands-on experiences for resident physicians. They experience firsthand an incomparable range of patient pathology, procedures and clinical care.

All of the programs have curriculum designed to meet all requirements of the residency review committee of the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The Broadlawns campus includes an acute care hospital, primary care clinics, specialty care clinics, urgent care and emergency services, lab, radiology, dentistry, crisis services, and a spectrum of mental health care. Since 2020, Broadlawns has renovated multiple areas of the hospital and built a new Medical Plaza. This building houses the Family Medicine and Transitional Year residency practice site, the Family Health Center as well as the Broadlawns and UnityPoint Psychiatry.
