University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford Residency Program Overview

Family Medicine Residency Program

Welcome to the Family Medicine Residency program at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford.

Dr. L.P. Johnson, a pioneer in family medicine education, started our program in 1972. Since that time, we have graduated more than 300 family medicine doctors, most practicing in both rural and urban under-served communities. We have graduates working in academic teaching centers and some even living and practicing internationally.

Here’s why our program is one of the best:

  • Residents are taught by faculty from all departments at the College of Medicine, ensuring a quality, high-volume experience.
  • Our core family medicine faculty has expertise in patient-centered care, chronic illness, rural healthcare, quality improvement initiatives, obstetrics, alternative and complementary therapies and research.
  • Most of our core rotations are located at SwedishAmerican Hospital. SwedishAmerican is a Top 100 quality hospital. We enjoy the full support of the hospital administration and medical staff, led by the CEO, who is a graduate of our program.


We also offer a Rural Training Track in Dixon.
