Why Choose Us?

As a physician, you will need the training to recognize and address the ways in which inequity currently drives health and wellbeing. Knowing that 80 percent of health is determined by circumstances outside of the traditional clinical and hospital setting, the Family Medicine Residency at Saratoga Hospital has been created to educate, mentor, and provide you with the knowledge, leadership, population health, and broad-based community skills to confidently address health in a holistic and integrative way. We are the pioneers in our region leading this effort.
