Riverside Family Medicine Residency, accredited on January 23, 1971, is one of the oldest family medicine programs in the country. Our emphasis on information technology allows us to provide the highest quality care for our patients and the greatest access to evidence-based knowledge for our residents. A high faculty-to-resident ratio allows residents independence to manage their own patients and creates a great teaching environment to learn patient care. Our strong collegial atmosphere is a unique trademark of the Riverside Family Medicine Residency Program. We continue to be committed to producing the finest family medicine physicians in the nation.
Riverside Family Medicine Residency is sponsored by Riverside Regional Medical Center. We are affiliated with Virginia Commonwealth University and Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine. We are located in beautiful, historic Newport News, Virginia.
