To Spouses / Significant Others and Families of prospective residents:

We know that in order for our residents with families to be successful, they need to know that their families are happy in Fort Wayne. Our Family Medicine Residency Program is a very family friendly program. Our residents (both those who are single and those with families) are very supportive of one another in all aspects of their lives. Not only do they enjoy working together but they enjoy spending time with each other outside of residency duties. The families of our residents enjoy these times as well.

If you have any questions, contact Michelle Harris at 260-399-7181 or
