Advocate Illinois Masonic Family Practice Center - Ravenswood is our model office where we provide family-focused, community oriented health care for patients of all ages in the diverse Ravenswood community. The integrated resident/faculty group practice encourages an atmosphere of mentoring and shared responsibility for our family practice center patients.
Our three-year program provides comprehensive training in family medicine with special emphasis on wellness and prevention, maternity care, care of the child and adult, geriatric care and family therapy. Residents are scheduled for 1-2 clinic sessions per week as a first-year resident, and 2-5 clinic sessions per week as a second- and third-year resident. A multidisciplinary team approach reinforces excellence in quality of care.
