Meritus Family Medicine Residency is the only rural program in the state of Maryland, and is situated just 70 miles from Washington, DC and Baltimore. We are a new and growing ACGME accredited, community-based program and are the only residency program within our 257-bed hospital. Our diverse first class of residents began their journey in July of 2019 and have just entered their second year of training. We see positive potential in being a new program, without any legacy to challenge, and we seek residents who desire to help design and craft their residency experience. We provide a training experience that focuses on the community and family medicine office first and encourages residents to become leaders in the community we serve.
