The academic year 2023-24 sees a number of innovations in our program. We are delighted to welcome our inaugural resident into our optional fourth year of training in the management of obesity for children and adults that leads to dual certification with the American Board of Family Medicine and American Board of Obesity Medicine. We continue our work with the rural mobile health clinic and are expanding our work with community outreach in urban underserved areas.
The application system for residency applications and interviews is also advancing innovations. Here are highlights of how they affect applicants' experience at Mercy Family Medicine:
- We are participating in program signaling through ERAS.
- We complete holistic reviews of each application and issue invitations to interview after doing so.
- We offer virtual interviews only.
- We will offer at least one open house after we complete interviews and submit our rank list.
I hope you discern Mercy Family Medicine to be a good fit for your personal residency needs and I hope Mercy Family Medicine is the better for your interest in it. Whether we fit your needs or not, I welcome you to the specialty of Family Medicine and look forward to recognizing you as a future colleague!
