Meet the Family Medicine Residents

Medical Students and Visitors,

Welcome to the website for the Fort Wayne Medical Education Program! We are Christy Tatara, DO and Allen Maertin, DO, the current co-chief residents. We believe that Fort Wayne is a big city with a small town feel that you are going to fall in love with!

Our residency is a "choose your own adventure", where residents have the ability to tailor their training to the scope of practice that they are most interested in, including training in operative obstetrics, colonoscopy, colposcopy, exercise treadmill tests, obstetric ultrasound, and osteopathic manipulation techniques. In support of this, we have an excellent core curriculum that supports all residents regardless of their academic aspirations.

Our support systems also include generous CME allowances, core journal subscriptions, and online access to fantastic resources including  UpToDate. Because we are one of the largest unopposed dually accredited Family Medicine residencies in the country, our residents always have the first opportunity to learn.

If you are a medical student, we encourage you to review the top 5 reasons the residents chose to train at FWMEP and even come out for a sub-internship! FWMEP embodies the welcoming spirit of our lovable Midwestern city; we love it and we are certain you will too!

- Christy and Allen
