This program has been educating outstanding family physicians since its establishment in 1972. We have evolved from our initial three residents into an 8-8-8 program with two accredited fellowships, Geriatrics (2006) and Hospice/Palliative Medicine (2007). The residency program also supports the Integrative Medicine in Residency training that was developed by the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (2008).
We are very proud of our ACGME accredited community-based, university associated residency program. Medical Center of Atrium Health Navicent is our sponsoring institution and our inpatient family medicine facility. Our hospital is a 637 bed, nationally-verified Level I-designated Trauma Center. Distinguished nationally for its excellence, Atrium Health Navicent is also one of the premier teaching hospitals in the United States and serves as a teaching hospital for the Mercer University School of Medicine. Atrium Health Navicent supports residency-training programs in family practice, general surgery, internal medicine, obstetrics and gynecology, and pediatrics.
