Oak Hill Hospital has been accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) for a three-year Graduate Medical Education Residency program in Family Medicine. The program is accredited for up to eight residents per year for a total of 24 residents training in Hernando County.
The Family Medicine Residency Program provides an education experience that prepares residents to become confident family physicians capable of providing comprehensive and coordinated care to patients and families. The program experience emphasizes the competencies and skills needed to practice high-quality family medicine within the community, utilizing a patient-centered medical home model.
“We have developed a high-quality resident-focused Family Medicine Program,” said Michael King, MD, NPH (National Public Health), FAAFP (Fellow of the American Academy of Family Physicians), Program Director for the Oak Hill Hospital Family Medicine Residency.
According to the Florida Department of Health, there is a critical statewide need for physicians. The expansion of the Graduate Medical Education program at Oak Hill Hospital will help to alleviate the shortage. This program is expected to benefit the residents of the local community, since many physicians ultimately practice where they complete their residency training.
