Abington is a community-based residency program in suburban Philadelphia. We serve a very diverse population with respect to race, ethnicity and income; about half of our patients are uninsured/underinsured, and half have commercial insurance. The program has a diverse faculty, with strong scholarly activity. Faculty author a monthly guideline column in Family Practice News, do national podcasts for organizations like the ADA, lecture nationally and have produced multiple textbooks. Residents are actively involved in much of this scholarly activity. We aspire to train compassionate, intelligent physicians who practice up to date, evidence-based medicine and are prepared for any real world practice setting..
