Thank you for your interest in our Family Medicine residency program at HealthONE in the Denver Colorado area! We are a vibrant program focused on developing compassionate, high quality family physicians. We strive to train exceptional outpatient family physicians who are also skilled to provide inpatient, emergency, and obstetric care, all while maintaining maximum flexibility in rotation electives. In addition, there are opportunities to tailor your residency experience to fit your desires in one of our tracks: sports medicine, maternity care, hospitalist, OMM and wilderness. Our highly engaged faculty has diverse interests and skills including two with fellowship training. There are daily opportunities to hone your skills in OPP and OMM if desired.

The HealthONE Family Medicine Residency is a unique partnership between the HCA-HealthONE healthcare system, Rocky Vista University, and Cornerstone family practice. Rotations provide experiences at both Sky Ridge Medical Center and The Medical Center of Aurora. With our inpatient experiences in a suburban and urban hospitals and our clinic in a more underserved area, we truly provide a diversity of patients. Our program has weekly interactive evidence-based didactic sessions on medical topics, procedural skills, practice skills, journal clubs and physician wellness. All residents have a mentor to support their progress and assist in scholarly activity including presentations and posters at local, regional and national conferences, manuscripts to peer reviewed journals and quality improvement projects.

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide quality, caring, patient-centered healthcare. We want our patients to feel they are being viewed by the doctors and staff, as unique, whole people, with individual needs. We will attempt to understand each person's needs by listening carefully then doing our utmost to meet them.

We will strive to provide efficient, courteous customer service to the best of our ability at all times. Being as accessible for same day appointments as possible will be the rule not the exception. We believe this "open access" system will not only allow our medical care to be delivered when it is most needed, but also when it is most convenient.

Our goal is to develop mutually fulfilling physician-patient relationships based on open communication and respect. Patients can trust that our doctors are giving medical opinions based on their best, most current knowledge and not biased by any insurance company influence. The doctors will attend continuing medical education courses regularly to be sure the information they impart is as up to date as possible.

It is our intention, to be sure each patient leaves our office feeling their concerns have been heard and questions answered. To achieve complete satisfaction for each patient is our ultimate goal.
