Welcome to Reid Health
Family Medicine Residency Program
Welcome and thank you for your interest in the Reid Health Family Medicine Residency program. We train family physicians to meet the healthcare needs of their communities and to become leaders of tomorrow. We are a newer program, opening in 2015, that focuses on innovation and continuing improvement. Our program is diverse, and we are committed to cultivating a healthy and welcoming environment for everyone.
As an important part of Reid Health, it is our mission to lead the communities we serve to well-being, one person at a time. We practice in a medically underserved area that nevertheless supports a complete palate of services, including an Emergency Department that provides more than 40,000 visits per year as a Level III trauma center, a complete cardiovascular service line that includes TAVR and open-heart procedures, and a strong neurology service that supports our Primary Stroke Center certification.
This broad spectrum of services and an unopposed residency structure allows our residents to learn from experts across several medical specialties.
The foundation for our training is our Family Medicine Center, which underwent a complete renovation in 2017. In this modern facility, residents build their own practice and care for a variety of health concerns with the support of a diverse and experienced faculty. Our curriculum is flexible to support our residents' career goals and has allowed our graduates to go on to a wide array of destinations, including fellowships, rural full spectrum practice, hospitalist practice, and ambulatory primary care.
We have a warm, supportive environment dedicated to providing excellent care and developing outstanding family physicians. We'd love for you to have the opportunity to learn more about us. We hope our website is informative in your search, but it is necessarily incomplete. If you'd like more information, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.

Hear from a Previous Resident
"The residency program prepared me for the real-world from a medical, clinical, financial, business, and administrative standpoint. During my time at Reid Health, I enjoyed the community hospital setting, ambulatory experience, specialty practice focused rotations, administrative duties, educational didactics, and individually guided educational experience.
Reid Health taught me how to maintain a work-life balance, so I could succeed both in and out of the hospital. By the time I completed residency, I was ready to pass my boards, and embrace the next step in my career, transitioning to a Hospitalist Fellowship.
When I started Fellowship, I realized I was leaps and bounds ahead of the actively practicing Hospitalists. Right from the start, I hit the ground running practicing current guideline directed evidence based medicine, rounding with efficiency, documenting with precision, helping lead administrative initiatives, and improving overall quality metrics."
