Resident Life

The longitudinal curriculum at IFMC - Fairfax Family Medicine promotes an adult learning environment that provides residents the opportunity work and think independently in a collegial environment with both educational and social support. Although the program is rigorous, faculty works with residents to achieve the balance that allow a lifetime of learning and practice.

The program has adopted an intentional approach to fostering a collegial work environment. Through the Chief Residents and Resident Business Meeting, residents actively participate in curriculum, policy and business development. Each resident is assigned a personal faculty advisor to monitor and assist both academic and professional development. The Program director regularly attends class meeting and is available for individual consultation. There are multiple social activities every year which residents and faculty attend together, including:

  • New intern welcome party
  • Resident Retreat: 3 day weekend retreat
  • Graduation dinner
  • Holiday luncheon
  • Combined resident class wellness activities throughout the year

Resident classes are encouraged, through regularly scheduled class meetings, to develop supportive relationships. Resident classes tend to bond and form strong lasting relationships, providing social support for the challenging task of becoming accomplished Family Physicians.

The residency, located in the diverse Northern Virginia area, has access to the amenities of a multicultural community. Restaurants, theatre, arts, shopping, spousal employment, volunteer opportunities, excellent schools, recreational and competitive athletics, amateur and professional sports are all available to residents and their families.

The Fairfax County government ( offers a wide variety of services for county residents. Located just outside Washington DC, the residency also enjoys proximity to the energy and excitement of the Nation’s Capital.
