Residency Program DirectorYou have chosen a dynamic, energizing field which will lead our nation to a more sustainable, equitable and higher quality health care system. At Cabarrus Family Medicine Residency you will develop the ability to lead and communicate with all constituents of the health care system from CNA’s to CEO’s. At Cabarrus Family Medicine you will work side-by-side with faculty physicians who exemplify such leadership. Our faculty members are engaged actively in clinical medicine as well as being on the forefront of quality improvement, local, regional and national leadership. 

At Cabarrus Family Medicine, our residents train in a true apprenticeship model. You will become a valued member of a vibrant family medicine office as well as your community. Each resident chooses one of four Cabarrus Family Medicine offices as their continuity clinic for their three years of training. You will find that Cabarrus Family Medicine is highly valued by the community for outstanding medical care, charitable work, and our contributions to the community’s overall health.

Our hospital, CMC-NorthEast, is a tertiary referral center, while retaining the feel of a community hospital. All of your required rotations are done at CMC-NorthEast. We are the sole residency program at our hospital, so you will become well known throughout the hospital. We enjoy strong and highly productive relationships with all the specialists. Our faculty are respected members of the hospital leadership. Residents are treated like colleagues by specialists, nurses and the senior executives alike. It is not unusual to find residents, cardiothoracic surgeons and the hospital president all hanging out in the doctor’s lounge.

Cabarrus Family Medicine providers have a strong ethic of servant leadership. As a shining example, our own Dr. Maureen Murphy was named the National Family Physician of the Year by the AAFP for 2015, Many of our residents and faculty volunteer at our Community Free Clinic, as well as dedicating their time and talents to international medical mission work. We are involved in numerous community events and also support the local health department in their mission to care for the community. 

The bottom line is that our residents leave us well trained to work in just about any setting. They go on to become leaders in their practices and communities. We hope you will visit and see for yourself what we have to offer!
