Caitlin D'AgataWell, it has been a journey!

Greg Sawin, our former CHA Tufts Family Medicine Residency Program Director, left CHA in November 2019. A national search was initiated December 2019, after a vigorous ad revision by our Search Committee, residents and faculty. In the meantime, Caitlin D'Agata stepped in as Program Director. The first COVID 19 surger hit March 2020, changing everything. Our process was, not surprisingly, slowed by the pandemic and I'm happy to share that the process has been concluded!

Several folks expressed interest in the position. Three were found to meet criteria for an initial search committee interview and two candidates were interviewed in person. I'm pleased to share that the feedback was overwhelmingly positive and strong for Caitlin D'Agata to be the Permanent Program Director and she has accepted the position!

Many thanks to the members of the Search Committee. Jasleen Kaur, Janell Corbett, Honor Macnaughton and Rick Pels offered terrific insight, energy and dedication to ensure a fair process. Shout out to Melissa Kelley who did a wonderful job shepherding this process, and to her stalwart scheduler Cayli Sadler.

Caitlin has demonstrated tremendous growth, determination, grace and grit in an unprecedented time. The future for CHA Tufts Family Medicine Residency is bright and I look forward to seeing the program flourish under her excellent leadership.

Congratulations Caitlin!

Dr. Laura Sullivan

Redefining Excellence in Primary Care

Health Equity

CHA is an integrated healthcare system with 13 primary care centers and 2 acute care community hospitals. Our explicit mission is to serve our diverse and complex patient population. We cultivate a passion for health equity and deliver the training needed to provide excellent care across a spectrum of primary care, population health, mental health and substance abuse.

Emphasis on Outpatient Training

Our residents become expert outpatient clinicians, understanding the unique and sophisticated skills needed in primary care. Our clinic is our curriculum and is recognized as a NCQA Level 3 (highest rank) Patient Centered Medical Home.

A Team Approach

Our residents develop strong and nuanced skills in team development, collaboration and leadership needed for effective team-based care.

Competency Based Curriculum

We support adult learners with clear learning goals. A robust information mastery curriculum creates a culture of evidence-based medicine, and a rigorous collection of didactics and clinical experiences backed by a sophisticated assessment system puts the learner in the driver’s seat.

Leadership, Quality Improvement and Change Management

Residents participate in longitudinal experiential and didactic work to equip them to be drivers of authentic improvement and innovation in primary care.

Areas of Concentration

Each resident graduates with advanced training in a self-selected area of interest within family medicine, including women’s health, addiction, adolescent and pediatrics, inpatient, geriatrics, integrative, sports, palliative care, PCMH, community health and academic medicine.

Tufts Family Medicine Residency is at the forefront of addictions training! Find out more about the addictions training program here.

Community Building

Each individual has a unique story. We aspire to be curious and learn from one another in service of being better colleagues and better doctors. All teach, all learn.
