Message from Iowa Lutheran Family Medicine Residency Program Director

null

Welcome to the Iowa Lutheran Family Medicine Program where we have trained high-achieving Family Medicine physicians for nearly fifty years. Our program has a history of training residents for a wide range of careers. Just in the past five years we have had graduates practice in the following settings: rural full scope family medicine, outpatient clinic, faculty positions, hospitalist medicine, emergency medicine, urgent care, and direct primary care. Our graduates are consistently and highly recruited by multiple health systems across the Midwest. 

Our residency is based out of Iowa Lutheran Hospital, a 225 bed community-based hospital within UnityPoint Health, the largest hospital system in the state of Iowa. This permits our residents to enjoy a small hospital atmosphere while still reaping the benefits and stability of a large hospital system. In addition to Iowa Lutheran, our residents benefit by rotating at other UnityPoint hospitals without having to leave town. These hospitals include Blank Children's Hospital, a dedicated pediatric center, and Iowa Methodist Medical Center, a level one trauma center. Our program is also affiliated with the University of Iowa which gives our residents access to the resources and perks that come with an academic affiliation.

Our East Des Moines clinic completes over 25,000 patient visits per year and allows for a broad mix of pathology across a diverse patient population. UnityPoint Health-Des Moines currently leads the region in market share for every service line. This allows residents to tailor his or her education with the assurances that the needed patient experiences and procedural opportunities will be attainable.

The best part of our program is the people. We have worked over many years to build a collegial atmosphere where everyone can learn in a non-threatening environment. Our faculty will look for ways to improve your medical knowledge and shape your education, all while focusing on wellness.

Please browse our website and reach out with any questions. Thank you for considering entrusting us with your education. Together, we can enhance our program and continue our successful tradition.

Best,

Joshua Rehmann, D.O.
