Medical and Dental Residency Program

As a community health center we are a premier environment for educating and training the next generation of healthcare professionals. We have an affiliated partnership with Christiana Care Health Systems’ Family Medicine Residency program and General Practice Dentistry Residency program.

Family Medicine Residency

Through collaboration with Christiana Care Health System, Family Medicine physician residents provide care full time at the Family Medicine Center at Westside Family Healthcare. Residents have a panel of patients who they see regularly and have training support from a team of Westside physicians. Residents will spend the three-year training experience under the supervision of experienced physicians at the Wilmington health center. You will practice full spectrum, evidence-based, patient-centered medicine in a Primary Care Medical Home model. Your training will include an emphasis on preventive medicine, acute and chronic disease management, and treatment of addiction disorders and complications. You will collaborate with behavioral health providers, nutritionists, health care coordinators, and other enabling services to care for your panel of patients.

Dental Resident Training

Westside Family Healthcare participates in Christiana Care Health Services’ General Practice Dental Residency Program. Westside provides appropriate teaching and supervision of dental residents under the supervision of a fully licensed dentist in a fully equipped operatory. Dental residents develop a full range of skills needed to evaluate, plan and treat patients. During your residency, you will provide preventive and restorative care and simple oral surgery. You will gain an understanding of community health, treating patients of diverse populations, dental materials and instrumentation, time management and behavior management situations. You will work with a resident coordinator/dental assistant in Electronic Dental Record charting, posting and documentation. The dental residency takes place at Westside’s largest dental site in Wilmington.
