a message from the

Program Director

Our residency program is a family friendly environment. Our faculty, staff, and residents have a variety interests both in medicine and in their personal lives. We have an integrated program that includes physicians, nursing, clinic staff, clinical pharmacists and behavioral health. The local medical community is very supportive of our unopposed community-based residency program. I personally attended this program as a resident, and after being gone for a few years, I missed the relationships that this program and medical community provide. I have been back for over decade and continue to thrive in this medical community, and I hope you will, too.
