Memorial Hospital has attained initial accreditation through the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to establish its first Graduate Medical Education (GME) Program in Family Medicine.
GME begins after students graduate from medical school with a Doctor of Medicine (MD) or Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO). Residents then match into existing residency programs around the United States. Successfully completing the residency training leads to the physician sitting for their specialty’s board exam to become board-certified and an independently practicing physician with a full medical license.
The mission of the Memorial Hospital Family Medicine program is to build healthier communities by improving care for the region’s most vulnerable populations. The residency will accomplish this goal through training and graduating well-balanced, compassionate physicians who are willing and dedicated to practicing the highest level of medicine.
