Application Information - Family Medicine at MedStar Georgetown

Welcome to the Georgetown University/Providence Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program! We are pleased to provide you with this overview of our program, and we welcome your application to train with us.

Since our program's beginning in 1978, we have been educating outstanding Family Physicians who have assumed leadership roles as practitioners, teachers and academicians. Our curriculum offers high quality full spectrum training with sufficient flexibility for exploring specific areas of interest. We offer a Global Health track and a concentrated Health Policy experience. Many elective opportunities are offered at Georgetown, Providence and our healthcare partners throughout the D.C. metropolitan area.

We are very proud of our program and are strongly committed to our residents and community. We are an ACGME accredited 7-7-7 community based, university administered residency program. Providence Hospital is our inpatient Family Medicine facility where Family Medicine is well represented in executive leadership. Our residents care for a diverse, well-established patient population and have valuable experiences at several inpatient and outpatient community sites.

The Fort Lincoln Family Medicine Center is our residency site. It is located a few minutes outside Washington, D.C. in an urban, underserved setting with a wide breadth of full-spectrum patients. We use an electronic health record and are a recognized NQQA Level 3 Patient Centered Medical Home. Our office accommodates approximately 20,000 visits per year. The Family Medicine Center has an in-house Social Worker, Referral Specialist, and two Community Health Educators dedicated to our at-risk populations (breast health, diabetics, prenatal and pediatric patients). We have inter-professional teams with an associated curriculum, and a resident run diabetes group visit program with a Certified Diabetes Educator.

MedStar Georgetown University Medical Center administers the residency program, offering residents faculty development and elective rotation opportunities in medical student education, health policy, public policy, primary care research, and medical editing with the AFP Journal. Our program offers the best of both worlds – the strong academic advantages of one of the nation’s leading medical schools combined with the training advantages of a well-established community hospital.

As the nation's capital, Washington, D.C. is an exciting place to live and to train. We appreciate your interest in our program and invite you to submit an application to join us.

Our program participates exclusively in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC). Therefore, only electronic applications will be accepted for residency positions. For more information on ERAS, please contact your medical school Dean's Office or visit ERAS.

All application materials must be submitted through ERAS, and must include:

  • Completed application

  • Medical school transcript
  • Medical Student Performance Evaluation (formerly called Dean's letter)
  • USMLE transcript
  • Three letters of recommendation from professionals with whom you have worked closely in medical school

Applications are reviewed when complete, and personal interviews are scheduled by invitation from October through January. We participate in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP), and comply with its policies when selecting applicants.
