Sunrise Community Health Center Track
Sunrise CHC Track residents spend their family medicine outpatient clinic time (continuity experience) at Sunrise Monfort Family Clinic (SMFC), rather than at the main residency family medicine clinic.
The curriculum for the Sunrise CHC Track resident is otherwise identical to the Core Track residents, with the same inpatient and specialty rotations, conferences, meetings, and shared-call schedule. The Sunrise CHC Track accepts two residents every year into its program.
The four paths that the residency offers are:
These are offered to the Core Track Residents as well.
A Community Health Center Setting
The environment at Sunrise is particularly well suited for the physician who plans to practice in a community health center setting and provides a unique opportunity to serve people of Latino, Somali and Burmese language and culture. It is not a requirement that the Sunrise CHC Track resident be bilingual, however it is helpful. Residents have their own patient panels and are precepted by SMFC physicians. A library is provided at SMFC. There are also regular visits by behavioral science faculty from the core program.
Facts about SMFC:
- Founded in 1973
- Federally funded community and migrant health center
- 65 percent Hispanic patient population
- 50 percent monolingual Spanish patient population
- Growing immigrant population (especially from Somalia and Myanmar/Burma)
