About the Family Medicine Residency Clinical Experience
The residents and faculty practices are divided into three teams to improve patient continuity and model small group practices.
You will work closely with experienced, board-certified family physicians at the Center. These faculty members are available for consultation during your practice hours. They will offer you expert guidance as you care for patients with a comprehensive range of health concerns. Milton Family Practice reflects the type of group practice that many residents choose after completing their residency. Emphasis is placed on accurate problem-oriented records to enhance communication, appropriate use of nursing and counseling professionals, and direct involvement in the organization and administration of the practice.
Patients often comment that they prefer to have all of their care at MFP as opposed to driving to the "big city" of Burlington for specialty care. This lends itself to the provision of full-scope family medicine on site including:
- on-site laboratory and X-Ray
- behavioral counseling
- social work
- nutritional counseling
Family Medicine faculty and residents perform the following procedures on-site among many others including:
- laceration repair
- casting and splinting
- IUD placement
Computer capabilities at MFP include:
- wireless high-speed internet connections
- electronic medical records (EPIC)
- medical pharmacologic and coding database
- medical literature search. medical literature search

Residents engage in community building activities right away in their first year, participating in education in the local schools with "helmets on heads" and "tar wars."

Our residents have been actively involved in the farm share project and are presenting their findings at an upcoming national conference.
