Our Mission

Our mission at MAHEC/Mission Sports Medicine Fellowship Program is to collaborate and provide outstanding care to patients and athletes across the 26 counties that comprise Western North Carolina. Our vision is to be a leader in primary care, sports medicine and musculoskeletal care while being advocates for our patients and educators to the community.  Due to the large volume of applicants, we cannot possibly invite every potential candidate to interview with the MAHEC Family Medicine Residency Program in Asheville. We do not discriminate based on age, race, religion, ethnicity, or sexual orientation.

In alliance with our organization, we embrace the following Values and Foundational Principle statements:


We deliver quality activities and services that our customers and partners value.

We promote equity and inclusivity.

We act with fairness, transparency, and the highest level of ethics.

We value partnerships and support interprofessional approaches.

We continuously innovate and improve our work.


Civility: We treat all people with respect and kindness, all the time.

Inclusivity: We value the contribution of people different than ourselves and the merits of an organization that reflects differences in our teams and our community.

Empowerment:  We value engagement, commitment, and ownership of MAHEC’s mission, work, and budget.
