The Rockford Family Medicine Residency Program was founded in 1972 by one of the early pioneers of our discipline, Dr. L.P. Johnson, and has continued to keep pace with the ever-changing field of family medicine. As the sole University of Illinois College of Medicine Rockford residency program, we offer an unparalleled experience with the patient care resources of one of the largest cities in Illinois
STRETCH-OB residents will complete a minimum of 50 C-sections as first assistant and 20 C-sections as primary surgeon.
