Welcome to the Advocate Christ Family Medicine Residency Program where we offer a unique training experience. We believe Family Medicine is a challenging discipline that requires a strong intellect and a dedicated soul.
Christ Medical Center is a comprehensive-care teaching and research hospital located one-half hour from downtown Chicago. It has 662 beds, a Level I trauma center and Level III NICU. Christ Medical Center is a recognized leader in cardiovascular medicine, emergency, surgery, neuroscience, oncology and women's health services. Since 1996, it has shared its campus with Advocate Children's Hospital - Oak Lawn, a four-story facility that has 45 private inpatient rooms, a twelve-bed pediatric intensive care unit and a seven-bed pediatric surgical heart unit.
The specialty care and training that our residents receive at these two facilities is unsurpassed and offers a tremendous learning environment for Family Physicians. Our diverse patient population and the strength of Family Medicine in our community ensure an education true to the ideals of our specialty. Our residency supports its learners with compassion and respect for the rigors of the specialty.
Since 1974, this program has been training Family Physicians who are leaders both locally and nationally.
