Director’s greetings

Dr. Philip Dooley | Ascension Via Christi Family Medicine Residency

Welcome to our website.  I am happy that you have found us.

Our mission is to teach comprehensive family medicine to residents of character who are called to serve the community with an emphasis on patient-centered care.  We strive to train you to be the type of Family Physician you want to be.  You set your trajectory and we will help you develop the skills to accomplish your goals, not only in medicine but in life.

Our program is adaptable enough that you can choose what you want to focus on for your future.   Our curriculum is created to be flexible and longitudinal.  On our hospital rotations in pediatrics, obstetrics, neonatology and adult medicine our residents are the only residents involved in patient care; creating the widest range of experiences and highest volume possible.  This also provides many inpatient and outpatient procedures and normal, high risk, and operative obstetrics.  There is autonomy in the care of patients with readily available faculty supervision.

Our graduates have chosen a wide variety of locations and practice styles including rural, suburban, urban, international, university campus health, hospitalist, academics and sports medicine.  They have broad training and are never limited in their scope of practice.  Half of our graduates practice obstetrics with many performing surgical obstetrics.  Many also perform EGDs, colonoscopies, and colposcopy/LEEP.

Our residents (your peers) and our faculty (your mentors/supervisors) are of the highest caliber – well-rounded, capable, and fun.  We truly have developed a residency family that is a great place to work, provide care to our patients, and grow as learners together.  This community is why I left Florida and moved to Wichita.

Please spend some time and look through our website at the resident and faculty profiles, curriculum, and fellowships to get to know us.

We would love to have you apply, interview, and meet our residency family.
