Facilities and Patients
The Family Medicine Center
The Family Medicine Center (FMC) has 11,000 square feet of space with 28 exam rooms, including two procedure rooms. The patient population at FMC represents the rich diversity of the Glendale community, including Spanish, Armenian, Korean and Tagalog as well as other cultures. On average, resident practices are about 28 percent children, and of the adult patients, about two-thirds are women.
We have made a great effort to prepare our residents for high-quality ambulatory care practices. Each resident is assigned as the primary physician to patients on the basis of family units. Every attempt is made to maintain continuity of care for patients with the assigned resident. The Center has more than 25,000 patient visits annually and is computerized, allowing us to analyze each resident's practice.
