Welcome to the Eastern Connecticut Family Medicine Residency Program. The Eastern Connecticut Family Medicine Residency Program (FMRP), sponsored by Manchester Memorial Hospital (MMH), a member hospital of the Eastern Connecticut Health Network (ECHN), was created in response to the critical shortage of family physicians in the eastern part of Connecticut. As the only family medicine residency program east of the river, FMRP provides a community-focused clinical site for residents to learn the art and science of family medicine.

FMRP is an AOA-accredited residency and is accepting residents.

The Family Health Care Center is the primary teaching site where residents will provide primary care to their own patient panel, under the guidance and supervision of board-certified family physicians and specialists. Residents will provide and learn at MMH, an award-winning community hospital, where residents will also run a Family Medicine Residency Service.
Residents will learn cutting-edge medicine while maintaining and building upon the core principles learned as medical students, in preparation for the dynamic nature of our changing health care system. 


It is the mission of ECHN to improve the community's well-being by providing high-quality and compassionate healthcare.   It is the mission of the Department of Medical Education to provide the finest,  most dynamic  academic  experience  possible  through excellent  clinical  instruction. We strive  to cultivate your professional growth as an ethical and responsible member  of the healthcare community.
