Family Medicine - Hendersonville
Welcome to HENDERSONVILLE
You are at an exciting time in your professional journey. The next three years will shape you professionally and personally for a lifelong career of service, and we’re glad that you found your way here.
While medicine has made amazing strides in the past 100 years, the systems we have do not deliver equally for all. Many changes are needed, but we clearly need physician leaders with the competence and care for our communities.
In Hendersonville we think that ALL should have high quality and affordable health care, and as a Teaching Health Center (THC), we get to this kind of real family medicine. Being a THC means that our residency is combined with a Federally Qualiﬁed Health Center (FQHC), and we see all patients, regardless of ability to pay. In this partnership, our residents and our community both win.
Rural medicine is full of challenges: disproportionate mortality rates, higher rates of addiction and mental illness, and also in being “opportunity deserts” that have depressed access to housing, education and employment. As a Community Based program, we see these challenges as opportunities for every patient encounter as well as in larger community health projects. From day one in our program, you will engage in the issues and be the change in your community.
Our curriculum is designed around giving you professional value. The ﬂexibility to “choose your own adventure” is more than a slogan, it embodies the heart of how we want to form the next generation of Family Physicians. In your intern year, you will start shaping the curriculum that serves you for a lifetime of practice. You will train in Full Scope family medicine that is robust and unopposed, and includes dedicated procedure time, high volume longitudinal obstetrics, and a clinical exposure that will equip you for your future.
In residency you will be stretched, discover new strengths, and you will be a new person at the end. In Hendersonville, we want you to find a harmony in the professional and personal. We live in the most beautiful part of the country, and have built a supportive environment around personal wellness that values you as a colleague from day one. Our faculty and residents model balance, resilience, and long-term joy in a demanding profession.
It’s an honor that you are considering training with us, and we’re excited to meet you. Come and explore the education we offer, the values we share, and how we can help you develop into the physician leader of the future.
