Family medicine residency

Mercyhealth's Family Medicine Residency Program

The Mercyhealth Family Medicine Residency Program fosters innovation while incorporating traditional family medicine, minor surgeries, obstetrical/gynecological care and pediatrics into its curriculum. The primary goal of our program is to equip future family medicine practitioners with the knowledge, experience and skills necessary to provide high-level patient care while improving the health and well-being of individuals and communities.

Multidisciplinary, team-based training

Throughout training, residents will receive ample opportunities to refine their communication skills, apply evidence-based medicine, improve clinical outcomes through hands-on practice, and develop habits conducive to lifelong learning and improvement in the field of family medicine. Mentorship and collaboration are critical components of our program. Residents will learn to practice as effective members of a health care system through multidisciplinary, team-based care within inpatient and ambulatory settings.

Our mission is to train residents to improve the health of individuals and communities. We will achieve this by teaching residents the required skills, providing needed resources and fostering confidence to practice comprehensive family medicine in any setting. We are committed to providing high-quality, personalized care for patients in all phases of life.

Residents will practice primary care under the supervision of board certified physicians. Each resident will provide comprehensive patient care for 48 weeks per year within their 36 months of residency training. Residents will work alongside interdisciplinary team members to provide quality, team-based care.
