Jackson Hospital & Clinic Family Medicine Residency Program (JHCFMR) accepts six residents per academic year. We are offer a curriculum designed to prepare residents to deliver high quality patient care in their future practice locations with special consideration given to the unique needs of underserved populations in both urban and rural settings. We offer experiences designed to help prepare family medicine physicians as they support their patients meet the challenges presented by the social, cultural, physiological, economic, and biological factors they may face. We guide family medicine residents as they learn to apply a comprehensive, continuous, and caring treatment approach, acquire health-assessment and preventive-medicine expertise, and enhance their skills in the art of medicine. Our program also focuses on the need to address family dynamics and community interactions in the treatment of patients.
