Presence Health

We care about the development of our residents and their families. That's why we embrace work-life balance that includes a generous salary and benefits package, reasonable call schedule, ample vacation and meeting time and residency retreats as some of the ways we encourage this balance, which also enhances personal and professional growth.

Resident stipends are governed by Presence Resurrection Health Care and are parallel to the salaries of similar level residents at the other Chicago hospitals with regular cost of living increases.

Application Criteria

Finding a residency program that fits your educational goals, your geographic needs and your lifestyle is crucial to your success in residency and for many years to come. Application and interview season can be a busy and often exhausting time. Our goal is to make your experience both fun and informative. The UIC/Presence Saint Joseph Family Medicine Residency Program participates in the National Resident Matching Program (NRMP). We accept applications through the Electronic Application Service (ERAS). Please visit the website for detailed application criteria.


Interviews are held Mondays and Fridays from approximately 9am to 3pm, during late October through the end of January. Our interview experience includes an opportunity to meet and interact with our faculty and residents in addition to a personally guided tour of both Presence Saint Joseph Hospital and Presence Seton Family Health Center, our inpatient and outpatient academic care facilities.

The interview season closes with our annual Wine and Cheese Reception, held next door to the hospital on the third Friday in January. Candidates and significant others are invited for a second visit to ask unanswered questions and enjoy a relaxing evening with program faculty and residents.
