Our Mission

The Baptist Memorial Health Care/Church Health Family Medicine Residency’s mission is to provide high-quality family medicine resident education across clinical continuums. We will emphasize both the holistic approach to comprehensive individual health and the collaboration required across disciplines to improve outcomes for our diverse population. Through our distinct collaboration with Church Health, residents completing the Baptist Memorial Health Care/Church Health Family Medicine Residency Program will be well prepared to practice the art of family medicine with joy and dedication, while mastering the science and technology of the evolving health care system. Our goal is for our residents to graduate with the ability to lead advanced primary care practices and to become a strong voice for the improvement of health in our community and nation.

As part of our unique health systems curriculum, Family Medicine residents will work with the Baptist Memorial Health Care Quality and Patient Safety teams, and will learn the Baptist Management System. Residents will be taught the importance of the “Triple Aim,” which includes:

  • Improved patient outcomes
  • Improved patient satisfaction
  • Decreased costs

Residents will also be integrated into quality and patient safety projects at Church Health. Church Health’s ongoing relationship with the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IHI) will provide our residents with additional opportunities to obtain first-hand experience with an undisputed world leader in health care performance improvement.

The Church Health will deliver a family medicine residency that fully integrates resident education into the Church Health Model for Healthy Living’s seven areas of health care:

  • Medical
  • Nutritional
  • Spiritual
  • Psychological
  • Exercise
  • Vocation
  • Relationships
