Community Work

We believe the well-trained family physician of the future will understand the important role a family physician can play in his/her community. Part of our curriculum therefore includes required longitudinal projects in residents' second and third years with the assistance of their faculty advisors. The Malden community is an ideal laboratory for learning this aspect of family medicine. Our residency was founded in large part to improve the health of a population that historically has had below-average indicators of health status.

In the past several years the Malden city government, the Malden business community, federal agencies, and non-profit organizations have collaboratively developed an extensive network of community-based organizations with whom our residents have the opportunity to work. There's still a lot to be done to improve health in Malden and our other service communities; our residents are playing a significant role in these efforts.
