Family Medicine Residency
The Family Medicine Residency Center is located on the North Mississippi Medical Center campus, a short distance from the main hospital. The center consists of 26 up-to-date exam rooms each equipped with a computer. A laboratory, X-ray facilities and three procedure rooms are available for resident training. The patient record is entirely electronic with links to other components of our health care system. The Center also includes a conference room, library and resident office space, designed to enhance educational opportunities. FMRC is a community-based, unopposed residency program.
First-year residents inherit a panel of patients from the graduating class to follow for the three years of residency through patient visits, hospital admissions, home visits and extended care facility visits. Faculty supervision is readily available and tailored to the resident's experience and competency.
FMRC staff members understand the special requirements of residency training and are committed to supporting resident training and to providing excellent patient care. Ancillary staff includes a Pharm.D. and a licensed clinical social worker who work with faculty members to introduce residents to the concepts of comprehensive care.
The FMRC has been recognized by the Diabetes Physician Recognition Program. Developed by the National Committee for Quality Assurance and American Diabetes Association. This voluntary program helps physicians use evidence-based measures and provide excellent care to their patients with diabetes.
Family medicine residents have access to direct involvement in a wide variety of challenging cases as well as a high volume of common conditions. The NMMC medical staff provides regular didactic lectures and supervises required rotations as well as personalized elective experiences. Our physicians welcome family medicine residents as colleagues and are always prepared to consult and teach.
