Ambulatory medicine is the cornerstone of family medicine education and of our program. The Family Medicine Center is our outpatient practice and is the center of the resident education experience.
Suburban location: Family Medicine Center at Foulk Road
Our original office location in North Wilmington serves the suburban underserved population. The space is equipped with 12 exam rooms, a resident room, faculty offices, administrative space and a conference room. Residents and faculty have access to embedded behavioral health and care coordination nursing support.
Urban location: Family Medicine Center at the Wilmington Health Center
Located in downtown Wilmington with Wilmington Hospital, the residency practice serves the urban underserved population. This location has 12 exam rooms with access to integrated behavioral health, nutrition, social work, and care coordination nursing support.

Experience two contrasting hospitals
University/academic or community? Large or small? Opposed or unopposed? These are questions students ask themselves when choosing a residency program.
At Christiana Care there is no need to choose.
We are fortunate to have the unique combination of a top-rated tertiary-care medical center as well as a growing community hospital, enabling us to enjoy the best of both worlds.
At Christiana Hospital you will appreciate the crucial role our health system plays as a regional center for excellence in heart services, cancer treatment, women’s health services, physical medicine and rehabilitation, infectious diseases, general medicine and surgery, and the state’s high-intensity trauma services. Here, residents will also benefit from education involving multiple residency programs.
At Wilmington Hospital, family medicine residents enjoy taking care of patients in a community hospital setting in which family medicine is the primary residency program in the hospital. Residents enjoy the direct contact and teaching they receive from attendings and specialists. Because our second outpatient office is within Wilmington Hospital, residents and patients experience wonderful continuity of care.
