Our Mission

To serve the needs of our community by providing innovative and excellent resident training and compassionate, high-quality patient care that meets the caring and cost-effective expectations of patients, providers and staff and preserves and strengthens the Swedish tradition of community service.

Our Vision

We aspire to be one of the best family medicine residencies in the country through the recruitment and development of exceptional resident physicians, faculty, administrators, and staff. We promote quality and safety in clinical practice while caring for a wide variety of patients, especially the underserved. We strive to enhance resident training through curriculum innovation, intensive faculty involvement, and through comprehensive, integrated, patient-centered care so that our graduates will provide exceptional care to their communities.

Swedish Family Medicine Residency provides the ideal learning opportunity in a supportive, encouraging environment with dedicated staff and faculty. Patient-centered care is not only an ideal here, it is a part of our daily practice. What better place to learn than where you can be surrounded by the beauty of the Rockies and all Colorado has to offer!
