CentraCare Family Health Clinic is a 19,009 square foot, state-of-the-art facility, completely equipped for educational purposes. We have twenty-six exam rooms, two procedure rooms, an Osteopathic Manipulation Technique room, a private entrance, a classroom for teaching, and separate workspace for faculty and residents.

Our clinic uses innovative technology and equipment, including video colposcopy, flexible sigmoidoscopy, and ultrasound, along with an electronic medical record that is directly connected to the hospital electronic medical record.

You will develop a practice of your own that is part of a patient care team consisting of other residents, several nurses, and physician faculty members. The team will share responsibility for families so other team members can provide continuity for you when you are not available. Mid-level providers assist in delivering urgent care services in the clinic.

Clinic highlights:

  • Certified Health Care Home
  • Laboratory, digital radiology, and pharmacy services on-site
  • Office procedures include: colposcopy, exercise treadmill testing, and more
  • Integrated care team, which includes psychologists, pharmacist, ADA-certified diabetic educator, dietitian, patient advocate, community health workers, medical legal partnership, community paramedic and social worker
  • Two blocks from CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital

If your patients require hospitalization, you will admit them to CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital with a faculty physician. The attending faculty on the hospital service will conduct rounds with you for all hospitalized CentraCare Family Health Clinic patients. While your patients are at CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital, you will have access to a full spectrum of specialty and subspecialty consultation services without loss of primary patient care responsibility. The faculty attendings will always be available to teach you and assist you in the care of your patients.

Because CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital is a regional, tertiary care hospital, you will be involved in the treatment of more complex medical cases than you might see in a smaller community hospital. You will have the opportunity to work with physicians and staff from many specialty areas that will provide you the background you will need to be more effective in your future practice. Simultaneously, because the Family Medicine Residency Program is the only residency at CentraCare - St. Cloud Hospital, you will have opportunities to learn procedures and manage patients who would otherwise be referred to specialists in a university-hospital setting.

Hospital highlights:

  • A 489-bed regional, tertiary care medical center with a community hospital feel
  • Magnet designation in recognition of excellence in nursing
  • Nationally-ranked by U.S. News and World Report and Thomson Reuters
