Couples Matching

We have a strong history of matching couples into our program. As an academic family medicine program based in a community hospital in Pawtucket, RI, we are neighbors to a large academic research hospital with over 20 residency programs in Providence, RI. This proximity is appealing for many couples. Please let us know if you have any questions about our history of matching couples.
