Preventive Medicine Residency

Welcome from the Program Director

Welcome to the Boston University Medical Center Preventive Medicine Residency. Our mission is to train highly motivated primary care physicians to serve as educators, investigators, and public health practitioners with a focus on topics relevant to medically under-served communities.  We have an exciting mix of educational curricular choices in epidemiology and health services research, theoretical and practical training in medical education, and experiential learning opportunities in public health.  Our program will give you tools for a successful career in academic medicine.

As you explore this website, I hope you gain an understanding of the depth and breadth of research, educational and clinical opportunities in our program.  Please don’t hesitate to contact us.
