Family Medicine Residency at Baptist Memphis
Our Family Medicine Residency Program is co-sponsored by Baptist Memorial Hospital-Memphis and the Church Health in Memphis, Tennessee. We are an Urban/Suburban program that is dedicated to creating outstanding family physicians with a commitment to providing care to patients and families from all walks of life. We emphasize our responsibility to God and our community to assist the less fortunate among us by offering each individual innovative care following best practice models to achieve and maintain the highest standards. To that end, our program curriculum includes requirements, as well as additional opportunities, for volunteer and leadership activities including the Crisis Stabilization Unit, addition medicine (AA, NA, Al-Anon, SLAA), Serenity House, and Grace House.
The program was awarded accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) effective July 1, 2015. Each year, we will recruit four applicants to fill the available PGY-1 positions for the following July.
