Montgomery Family Practice is the home of the residency program. The resident clinic is an 11,000 square foot facility with 14 examination rooms, a procedure room, faculty offices, a resident lounge, a meeting room, a resource library, and a centrally located classroom. Family Medicine Residents, under the supervision of ABMS or AOBFP certified Family Physicians, provide comprehensive primary care to a diverse population in Norristown, PA.
