Our innovative programs will be searching for enterprising and engaged Medical School graduates who will embrace this exciting opportunity. Through our affiliation with Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, our stellar multidisciplinary faculty will obtain any needed additional support for the academic needs of our residents.

Our institution received initial accreditation by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) in 2014. Accreditation of our Internal Medicine program was approved by the American Osteopathic Association in June 2015 and by the ACGME in September 2015 and our Transitional Year program in 2016. Our future expansion includes development of a Hospice & Palliative Care fellowship as well as several others, including a partnership with our sister HCA hospital, Cartersville Medical Center, to support them in the development of Family Medicine and Emergency Medicine programs.

Although residency training is relatively new to Redmond, our programs are designed and implemented by experienced faculty from renowned institutions such as Emory University, Harvard University, Johns Hopkins University, University of Alabama, Birmingham, University of California, Irvine, and Indiana University, thereby combining state of the art medical education with timeless clinical skills. Our teaching faculty have been involved in undergraduate and graduate medical education in the Northwest Georgia region for decades.  Our faculty practices in Rome, Georgia, and the surrounding communities. They take great pride in how they care for patients and look forward to passing on these virtues to our trainees.  Our goal is to recruit, train, and place primary care providers in suburban and rural Georgia as well as to support the training of subspecialty and other practitioners. We believe this program will greatly benefit our region and improve the health of our communities.

Redmond Regional Medical Center is focused on excellence in clinical care with world class specialty care. We are engaged in an ambitious enterprise to train the next generation of doctors. Our training programs are coupled to parallel efforts to develop health science research and to enhance our institution’s patient care quality and safety missions.

We were excited to enroll our first MD and DO candidates in 2016 for Internal Medicine. With our first Internal Medicine graduating class entering their practices or fellowship training in 2019, we are absolutely thrilled with the quality of physicians that they have become.

Please explore our program online, contact our faculty members, and consider becoming a part of this remarkable endeavor in medical education here at Redmond Regional Medical Center.

Warm Regards,
