Welcome to the University of Minnesota/St. Cloud Hospital Family Medicine Residency 

A welcome from Dr.  Satre

"Oh, your resident was just here. What a great doctor!"

This was a recent comment from the mother of one of my patients as I walked into her child's hospital room to pay a visit. I hear similar comments frequently, but it never gets old and continues to fill me with pride. Not pride in myself, but pride in our residents and in everyone who has guided, mentored and taught them at this institution. It's amazing to think how many people are involved in training our residents. not just our residency faculty and the 400 or so physicians on the medical staff, but the multituDr. Tom Satrede of nurses, ancillary staff, advanced practice providers and administrative staff that touch them during their journey.

"My resident this month..."

Thus began a comment from one of our sub-specialty physicians at St. Cloud Hospital regarding one of our residents he was working with. It struck me how he began the sentence, using the first person possessive, "my," instead of the second person possessive, "your." It struck me so much that I had to shake myself out of my thoughts and back to the conversation. This physician, like the others in St. Cloud and the surrounding rural clinics, has taken ownership of his part in our residents' training. Maybe a subtle shift in words, but it speaks highly of the efforts our community puts forth.

Welcome to our website, I invite you to look around and learn more about our program. Cyberspace can't do it justice, however. We hope you can experience it in person.
