Residency Program

Lawndale Family Medicine Residency

Lawndale Christian Health Center will launch its Family Medicine Residency (FMR) program in 2020! We are excited to welcome residents to experience faith-based primary health care in an urban setting.

LCHC is an optimal site for family medicine training, and functions as a single-program sponsor of a 6-6-6 Family Medicine Residency. For over 15 years, LCHC has been committed to medical education and home to hundreds of medical student and resident rotations. However, as Teaching Health Center graduates and other providers who have trained in medically underserved communities joined LCHC’s workforce, a natural and more formal commitment to GME took hold.

Our diverse patient population is reflective of the unique history of the west side of Chicago. Our residency highlights LCHC’s commitment to caring for the underserved and our focus on training mission-driven residents capable of providing quality care in the exam room and beyond.

For more information, please contact Program Director Ben Preyss, MD (BenjaminPreyss@lawndale.org) or Associate Program Director Liz Redican, DO (ElizabethRedican@lawndale.org).

If you are interested in applying, we encourage you to join us for a Clinical Rotation.
