Family Medicine Residency Program
650 Stewart Road
About the Program
The Family Medicine Residency Program based at Mercy Memorial Hospital System is a new, unopposed community-based program that is scheduled to commence July 2013. Our program received its initial accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education effective 2012.
Our program endorses the American Academy of Family Physicians concept of the personal medical home both as the place for individuals to receive acute, chronic, and preventive medical services, and also as the quintessential learning environment for residents. Through an on-going relationship with a resident family physician in their medical home, patients can be assured of care that is accessible, comprehensive, integrated, patient-centered, safe, scientifically valid, and satisfying to both patients and their physicians. Within our program, the family medicine residents will experience family medicine as a distinct specialty that is dynamic, expanding and transformative.
