Washington Health System’s Family Medicine Centers are staffed by board-certified family medicine physicians and family medicine residents who are committed to providing high quality family medical care. These are academic medical practices
operated by the Washington Health System Family Medicine Residency Program, a three-year training program for family medicine physicians. Full-time, board-certified physicians are on staff at each center and supervise the resident physicians.
