The Christus St. Vincent Family Residency Program responds to a critical need for physicians in rural areas of the state. Since the inception of the CSVFMRP, 71% of its residents remain in New Mexico.
This residency incorporates a unique combination of tertiary care training with broad experiences in family medicine in rural settings. This “1+2” model evolved in the mid-90’s to decentralize training of physicians from tertiary care sites into community settings like those in which they will be practicing. This is a longitudinal and block-based residency experience.
