About Our Family Medicine Residency Program
The Family Medicine Residency Program is dedicated to training family physicians who seek to care for patients from all social and economic backgrounds. Co-sponsored by Memphis health care institutions Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis and Church Health, we are committed to sharing in their missions of providing high-quality treatment while reflecting the ministries of Christ.
Our emphasis on responsibility to our community by providing assistance to the less fortunate is emulated in our Family Medicine Residency Program curriculum. This includes leadership and volunteer opportunities with programs such as Serenity House, Grace House, the Crisis Stabilization Unit and addiction medicine (AA, NA, Al-Anon, SLAA ).
The Family Medicine Residency Program seeks out those individuals who wish to give back to the Memphis community while fulfilling their own medical education goals.
