Peak Vista’s Family Medicine Residency (FMR) program ushered five doctors, now trained in Family Medicine, into the health care world.   

About the Family Medicine Residency

The FMR program is a traditional, three-year Family Medicine Residency with community support from local health care organizations and specialty physicians. Each resident learns the ins and outs of Family Medicine through rotations for outpatient pediatrics, family medicine, gynecology, obstetrics, community medicine, homeless health care, and geriatrics. Residents learn through patient interaction, bedside teaching, and structured educational sessions, how best to care for patients. The Peak Vista Family Medicine residents rotate through major hospital systems in the Colorado Springs region, as well as various private offices throughout the city. At the end of their training, each resident will undergo a board examination to earn their certification.

'The shortage of health care providers is a national crisis. Programs like these, which educate new physicians, are invaluable right now. They can only be sustained through the support of our community and health care partners.'

— Lisa Ramey, DO, Chief Medical and Dental Officer

Peak Vista’s FMR program is the only primary care residency program in the Pikes Peak region.

'This group of residents joined the program in 2019. After their rollercoaster over the past three years, I know that they have the tools to handle any scenario. They will make excellent pratitioners.'

— John Epperly, MD, Interim Program Director
