The offices and practice of Lloyd Sweeney, MD, founding director, served as the program’s initial base, with the first two residents graduating in 1975. CFM moved to its current location on the Avera campus in 2002.
Since 1973, over 400 doctors have graduated from the SFFMR program, many of which continue practice in South Dakota and the immediately adjacent states. Presently, 33 doctors are residents of the program, including 6 doctors at the Pierre Rural Family Medicine Residency in Pierre, South Dakota.
