Welcome to the Rush-Copley Family Medicine Residency Program website. As you browse through the website, I am confident that you will get an idea of what makes this program unique and why I chose it.
We are a well-rounded unopposed program with excellent opportunities for residents to gain experience and knowledge while developing professionally and personally. This is done under the guidance of our core and community attendings who bring with them, unique and vast experiences. As an unopposed program, we function as the only residents in the hospital and provide 24-hr coverage to our inpatient service as well as run rapid response teams giving us exposure to all aspects of medicine including obstetrics and pediatrics.
The strongest quality of our program is the comradery that exists amongst the residents, faculty, and staff. This is a culture that the program has cultivated over the years and continues to grow. We work closely and collaboratively with community attendings, specialists, and hospital staff in an environment that promotes respect, friendliness, and teamwork while allowing for individuality. The specialists and subspecialists are very approachable and communicate respectfully with us. We are not just seen as “Residents” but as doctors and fellow colleagues with relationships that exists outside of the workplace. I have played ping pong with the neurosurgeon, and one-on-one basketball games with the sports medicine faculty are available upon request.
Our location is also ideal. Our program is located in the city of Aurora, the second largest city in the state of Illinois. This provides us with an incredibly diverse group of patients and medical conditions. Many of our clinic patients, often including multiple generations, have been coming to our clinic for years from all neighboring cities. The proximity to the city of Chicago allows us to enjoy the wonderful events, diverse culture, and infrastructure of a world class city.
As you go through the Match process and decide where you would like to call “home away from home” for 3 years, I invite you to consider our Family Medicine Residency program. Here, you will develop an excellent knowledge base and an opportunity to develop your own unique way of practicing Medicine in a variety of clinical settings. Residency is challenging and can be overwhelming, but here at Rush-Copley, you will fun and exciting days to make up for the difficult ones.
