Welcome to Carolinas HealthCare System!
It is my pleasure to introduce you to our Family Medicine Residency program. We are a very well-established program, dating back to the early 1970s when family medicine first became a specialty, and are fully-accredited by the ACGME. While there are many excellent residency programs in our state and region, what distinguishes Carolinas Medical Center is that we offer the best of both worlds: a strong academic environment in a thriving community-based program. Additionally, with the location of our inpatient service at CMC-Mercy and CHS-Union, residents experience the benefits of both academic and community-based settings. Our faculty is outstanding and very approachable, with expertise that runs the full scope of family medicine. Our residents and faculty enjoy supportive, collegial relationships with our peers in other specialties both in the hospital and beyond. Please take time to explore our website and learn more about our program and community. There are a few initiatives that I would like to highlight for you:
I would encourage you to contact our residents to get a feel for what it is like to work and live in the Charlotte and Monroe areas. On this site, you will find information on our faculty, curriculum, resident benefits. Please contact us if you have any questions about the program or the application process.
Thank you again for your interest in our program and best wishes to you as you strive to make this important decision and transition into the next phase of your professional life. I hope to see you soon!
