Sample Curriculum

Resident Continuity Clinics

Residents have the opportunity to conduct their continuity clinics in Jefferson City’s local Community Health Center. This is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that serves a wide range or patients with a robust multi-disciplinary team. This team extends beyond our resident physicians and includes dental, vision, and psychiatric services and allows our physicians to quickly and effectively utilize additional subspecialists that their patients may require. This affords us an excellent platform from which our attending physicians, who are practicing providers in the community, can help impart their knowledge, compassion, and skill to our resident physicians.

Additional integrative medicine curriculum

Capital Region’s Family Medicine Residency Program has collaborated with the highly respected University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, founded by Dr. Andrew Weil, to provide integrative medicine curriculum for the residents.

The 200-hour curriculum includes modules in nutrition, lifestyle and exercise, herbs and supplements, woman's health, pediatrics, mind-body medicine, and special topics such as environmental medicine, immunizations and approaches to cancer.

This curriculum is offered to our residents and taken on a volunteer basis. It will be completed in addition to the requirements of the residency. Dr. Chris Link, site supervisor, will be overseeing the resident's progress and meeting with them on a regular basis.
