Family Medicine - 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. We’re glad that you found your way here, and I invite you to explore the opportunities and values we cultivate here.

For more than twenty years, the core of our mission has been to train physicians to serve as leaders in rural Western North Carolina. We are a Teaching Health Center, which embodies the best parts of family medicine. Our residency is combined with a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that sees all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. In this partnership, our resident physicians and our community both win.

Rural medicine is full of challenges: disproportionate mortality rates, higher rates of addiction and mental illness, and “opportunity deserts” that have depressed access to housing, education, and employment. 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 with these issues and be the change in your community.

We want your PROFESSIONAL best
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 clinical exposure that will equip you for your future.

We want your PERSONAL LIFE to thrive
Residency will be tough. It will require a lot of you and your loved ones. You will be stretched, discover new strengths, and become a new person by the end. To get there in one piece, you must find harmony in your professional and personal realms. In Hendersonville, we want your best life now, not three or five or ten years down the road. 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.
