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. The Family Medicine Residency reflects the synergenic missions of both partners:
Church Health seeks to reclaim the Church’s biblical commitment to care for our bodies and our spirits..
Baptist is committed to providing quality health care in keeping with the three-fold ministry of Christ: Healing, Preaching, and Teaching.
