The Altoona Family Physicians Family Medicine Residency has been one of the longest-running and fastest growing parts of the hospital. Founded in 1975 as Allegheny Family Physicians, the “AFP umbrella” has expanded at a whirlwind pace. AFP now encompasses.
Located across the street from UPMC Altoona, Altoona Family Physicians’ main clinic is the cornerstone of our program. The clinic is a modern office complex specifically designed for the residency program that features its own CLIA/CAP-certified lab, procedure rooms, and counseling rooms. We have the ability to perform colposcopy, NSTs, multiple gynecologic procedures, cryotherapy, office lab procedures, ultrasounds, and minor surgical procedures. We see over 15,000 patient visits per year. The majority of the residents do their continuity clinic here and are supported by numerous RNs, LPNs, and CMAs. Learn more about our fellowship.
