Lincoln Family Medicine Residency Program Awarded Grant
The Lincoln Family Medicine Residency Program’s project, titled Healthy Adolescents in Our Neighborhood, has been selected to receive a 2017 Adolescent Immunization Grant Award in the amount of $11,200 from the American Academy of Family Physicians Foundation. The AAFP Foundation Immunization Awards recognize Family Medicine residency programs for identifying and developing solutions to overcome barriers to immunizations and promote sharing of immunization best practices.
Since its inception in 1975, the Lincoln Family Medicine Program (LFMP) has established itself as one of the country’s preeminent unopposed, community-based residency programs, attracting some of the brightest resident physicians in the U.S. and around the world. A fully accredited program, LFMP was established by the Lincoln Medical Education Partnership (LMEP) and is affiliated with the University of Nebraska Medical Center.
A division of LMEP, the Lincoln Family Medicine Program plays a crucial role in meeting the Midwest’s need for primary care physicians. As a community-based residency program, over 250 community physicians will volunteer more than 40,000 teaching hours to its residents this year. The physicians of LFMP provide care at the Lincoln Family Medicine Center located at 4600 Valley Road. The Lincoln Behavioral Health Center is also housed within the Residency Program there. Providing full-spectrum medical care, each patient receives double benefits: cutting-edge medical treatment from recently graduated physicians, plus decades of experience from supervising physicians. New patients are currently being accepted. For more information, please visit www.LMEP.com or call (402) 483-4571.
