Faculty

The University of Minnesota/St. Cloud Hospital Family Medicine Residency's faculty is committed to teaching and promoting your professional and personal growth. The faculty includes four full-time and two part-time board-certified family physicians and a psychologist. All of the faculty continue with an active family practice, including obstetrics, by seeing their own panel of patients in the CentraCare Family Health Center. This allows us to model family practice daily and ensures that we maintain our excellent clinical skills. We belong to many professional societies, including the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine and the American Academy of Family Physicians. We continue to publish and lecture extensively.
