Family Medicine Residency Program

The San Jose-O’Connor Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program is an “8-8-8” residency program, meaning it is comprised of 8 residents in each of their three years of training – one year of internship followed by two additional years of residency. This is, of course, after a minimum of four years of medical school.

Residents are trained to become community physicians skilled at caring for all age groups of patients – from newborn to the elderly. Residents are also trained to deliver babies, assist surgeons, and care for patients admitted to the hospital. Residents are recruited from medical schools all over the United States, and the 8 residents selected each year are selected from a pool of several hundred qualified applicants.

The Sports Medicine Fellowship Program offers a Certificate of Added Qualification (CAQ) in Sports Medicine to two candidates per year – one graduate from a Primary Care Residency Program and one graduate from an Emergency Medicine Residency Program.  The fellows, as part of their training, supervise residents, teach residents in the Sports Medicine Clinics of our program, and lecture to residents during noontime conferences.

The residents are trained by physician-educators (known as “faculty”) with a wealth of clinical and educational expertise. The Program Director is Robert Norman, MD, a past-graduate of the program. The Family Medicine Associates of San Jose (FMASJ) faculty consists of 11 board-certified Family Physicians, one Family Nurse Practitioner(FNP)/Physician Assistant (PA-C)/Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), and one Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW). Their expertise is broad-based, covering such areas as:

  • Adolescent Medicine
  • Behavioral Science
  • Cardiology
  • Counseling Techniques
  • Epidemiology
  • Geriatric Medicine
  • Gynecology
  • Headache Management
  • Infectious Disease
  • Informatics (computer and PDA use in medicine)
  • Obstetrics
  • Orthopedic and Sports Medicine
  • Patient Education
  • Procedural Medicine
  • Public Health
  • Tropical Medicine
  • Women’s Health

These faculty physicians have trained more than 160 local family physicians in the skill and art of family medicine – perhaps even your own, local family doctor.
