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.
