Welcome to the MAHEC Boone Family Medicine Residency! We are a rural, unopposed, full-scope program in the North Carolina mountains. We’re a new program—we just welcomed our first class in June. Our curriculum emphasizes rural medicine, health disparities, behavioral health, procedural skills including POCUS and colonoscopies, and the care of special populations including LGBTQ patients and patients with substance use disorders. We believe that a family medicine residency program is intended to produce excellent clinicians, but a great program shapes graduates to practice with humanity and compassion and to serve their communities as “physician-citizens.” In a new program in a small town, you can make a big impact as you learn to be a physician-citizen.
