We are a rigorous Family Medicine training program based in scenic Asheville, NC. Our transformative residency program is set in the Blue Ridge Mountains and serves the rural, often underserved, populations of the Western NC region. Our goal is to develop residents into highly skilled and compassionate physicians through quality education, innovative practice, evidence-informed decision making, and collaborative, team-based care. Our graduates’ skills extend beyond the care of the individual patient into population health, community needs assessment, scholarship, healthcare advocacy, and practice management in an evolving healthcare system. We train family physicians who can practice full-spectrum Family Medicine anywhere, from rural to urban and regional to global settings.
