Family Medicine Residency Program

a one-of-a-kind Residency experience in the heart of Memphis, Tennessee.

This opportunity offers Residents opportunities to experience Family Medicine in a leading hospital system, the largest faith-based charitably-funded nonprofit health clinic and in a thriving community committed to serving the underserved.  Our focus is to bring expertise, compassion and a deep understanding of Social Determinants of Health to engage patients, provide exceptional care and ensure well-being for patients and their families.

What are you looking for in a Family Medicine Residency?

  • Do you crave the freedom to care for the whole person, body and spirit, and not just the disease?

  • Are you convinced that the practice of medicine is more than applying technology and prescribing pills?

  • Do your spiritual values call you to merge healthcare with issues of justice, faith and community?

  • Do you want to work in the company of physicians, dentists, optometrists, behavioral health professionals and wellness experts?

About the Family Medicine Residency

In partnership with Baptist Memorial Health Care, Church Health is committed to serving as the foundation for new doctors and providing physician role models.

Our Family Medicine Residency follows curriculum guidelines set forth by the ACGME as well as an added focus on physician advocacy for the underserved. We train physician leaders to understand the role that health systems and social disparities play in the lives of patients. Our residents learn how to empower families and heal communities through opportunities with Church Health Outreach Partners such as Perea Preschool, Dorothy Day House and others.

Residents are trained in Church Health’s integrated, whole-person model of care, based on the organization’s Model for Healthy Living. The Model identifies the seven core areas of a person’s health – movement, medical, work, emotional, nutrition, friends and family and faith life.

About the Partnership

Co-sponsored by Baptist Memorial Health Care and Church Health, our mission is to provide Family Medicine resident education in an environment of high-quality clinical continuums.
