Family Medicine

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency Spokane

A Modern Northwest Approach

Family Medicine Residency Spokane has a pioneering history with a modern Northwest approach to teaching family medicine. Located in an outdoor lover’s playground, we are a three-year, ACGME-accredited program that trains 10 residents per year in a collaborative medical neighborhood model, including onsite ancillary services and a tertiary care hospital serving a tri-state region. FMRS empowers well-rounded, resourceful, and compassionate family physicians through robust training in all aspects of full-scope family medicine. You will work with passionate faculty and our enthusiastic Sports Medicine and OB Fellows to learn evidence-based care that will give you the tools to succeed anywhere life takes you.

Our faculty and residents are part of the University of Washington’s robust WWAMI network of family medicine. This partnership feeds the thriving family medicine culture of the Pacific Northwest. Resources as part of this network include collaborative faculty development, resident leadership development, and the extensive UW online medical library.

Medical Residency Tracks

Spokane Training Track

Located in downtown Spokane, Washington. We offer the best of both worlds: a strong academic presence by the surrounding medical schools as well as an abundance of clinical opportunities within our community. From our start, we have enjoyed an outstanding level of support from our geographic, medical, and economic community.

Rural Training Track

In 1986, we established the first Rural Training Track program in Colville, Washington which has become the national model and standard for rural community-based graduate medical education.


Obstetrics Fellowship

In 1984, we established one of the first postgraduate fellowships in obstetrical training, providing L&D as well as surgical obstetric experience for graduate family physicians.

Sports Medicine Fellowship

In 2008 we established our Sports Medicine program, providing sports medicine opportunities at every level, from grade school through professional sports.


This is an application based fourth-year medical student rotation.
