Family Practice Center
Siouxland Medical Education Foundation
The Siouxland Medical Education Foundation was established in 1975 as a result of the cooperative efforts of the Sioux City hospitals and physicians. The newly constructed Siouxland Medical Education Foundation is known to many area residents as the Family Practice Center and is located at 2501 Pierce Street, Sioux City, Iowa.
The Foundation sponsors a three-year family practice residency program and a one-year pharmacy residency program, both of which are affiliated with the University of Iowa College of Medicine. These are the only two residency programs in northwest Iowa. Over one hundred thirty seven residents have graduated from the program since 1975. Of these family practice graduates, over half are practicing within 100 miles of Sioux City. In addition to its resident physicians, the Foundation provides training to about 40 medical students, physician extenders and pharmacy students each academic year.
