Department and Faculty
The Department of Family Medicine provides comprehensive medical evaluations and primary care for patients of all ages in the Jacksonville, Florida, area. Presently, the department has multiple clinics in northeast Florida. At the residency location, we have over 10 full-time faculty members, including at least one pediatrician.
The Mayo Clinic campus in Jacksonville, Florida, includes a state-of-the-art hospital, which opened in 2008 and has 304 beds, two comprehensive outpatient medical complexes, two active research facilities, full-service laboratories and radiology, and an on-site pharmacy.
More than 310 staff physicians at Mayo Clinic's campus in Florida represent more than 50 clinical specialties. The campus has more than 400,000 patient visits a year.
Our family medicine resident-faculty practice located on the Mayo Clinic campus is a certified Level 2 Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) by the National Committee for Quality Assurance. In addition, as an institution, we are transforming to the Mayo Model of Community Care, which encompasses many of the PCMH requirements and more.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many of our faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are highly regarded in their fields. Each one regularly participates in our Core Curriculum Seminar. You have direct access to all family medicine faculty members as they precept and guide you throughout the Family Medicine Residency.
Advisers and mentors
You are assigned a dedicated faculty adviser who can provide comprehensive educational advice and personal support. Trainees meet with their advisers periodically throughout the program to review their progress and career goals, and ensure that their educational needs are being met. Your adviser also serves as a contact point for introducing you and your family to Jacksonville and the Mayo Clinic system.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo Clinic each year. They present their work during lectures, participate in hospital rounds and have informal discussions with trainees. You are encouraged to take full advantage of these educational opportunities.
