Family Practice Residency

The Family Practice residency program is full-time and 3 calendar years in length. A Master of Science in Advanced Clinical Practice degree is an integral and mandatory part of our program. The cost of the master's program is waived for the resident.

Applying

We are currently accepting applications for Fall 2018. We accept only one Family Practice resident per year with the program commencing on or around September 1st of each year.

The on-campus interviews take place in April. There will be a Family Practice entrance examination on the same day as the interviews. We like to notify the selected applicant in May to give them 3 months notice prior to beginning the program.

Benefits

The resident is compensated with stipends for each year in the amounts of $30,000 for year 1; $32,500 for year 2; and $35,000 for year 3. Health insurance is provided along with 2 weeks (10 days) of paid time off each year. In addition, all National University postgraduate programs are complimentary.
