Rockford Family Medicine Residency Program

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 Illinois’ largest cities. The program is affiliated with SwedishAmerican: A Division of UW Health with core rotations at the award-winning SwedishAmerican Hospital where we enjoy the full support of hospital administration and medical staff. The nearby UI Health L.P. Johnson Family Health Center is close to Rockford’s growing downtown area with interesting restaurants, diverse shops and a bustling city market. Art shows, concerts, sporting events and children’s activities entertain and engage Rockford residents from all walks of life, making this community a wonderful place for singles and families alike.
