The mission of McLeod Family Medicine Rural Residency Program is to graduate skilled physicians who are well-rounded and able to understand and treat the unique conditions of patients within the rural and under served areas.
Rural training tracks provide a learning environment for residents who want to experience full spectrum family medicine in a rural setting. Rural settings provide a unique niche for Family Medicine in that physicians regularly take care of patients of all ages practicing both inpatient and outpatient medicine.READ MORE
One of the wonderful aspects of rural medicine is the lack of availability of many specialists. This allows primary care doctors to “stretch their wings” as physicians to perform procedures and take care of medical diagnosis that might be referred to a specialist in a more urban environment.
As a new rural training track program, we at McLeod provide residents a rare opportunity to help build a new program within the context of leveraging the strengths of the established, unopposed 40 year old “parent program”. At the McLeod Family Medicine Rural Training track, residents get the “best of both worlds”. Approximately one third of the time is spent at McLeod Regional Medical Center in Florence where there are higher acuity patients with an established training infrastructure and two thirds of the time at one of our rural community hospitals. This provides a more intimate training setting where you will get to know the community and learn to identify and serve its’ unique needs.
We welcome you to the McLeod Family Medicine Rural Residency Program!
