Baptist Prepares for the Future with Residency Programs

Sep 20 • 2017

According to a report commissioned by the Association of American Medical Colleges, the United States will experience a shortage of between 40,000 and 100,000 physicians by 2030. This shortage can have a huge impact on the health and wellness of a population. That’s why at Baptist we’ve developed a number of programs to help address this issue and attract qualified health care professionals to our communities. Two of the programs we have in place are a radiology residency program and a family medicine residency program in collaboration with Church Health.

Through these programs, we’re able to attract some of the brightest health care professionals in the country. During their training, these professionals not only learn from experienced providers, but they also learn about the health needs of our local population. This puts them in an excellent position to care for our families well after they finish their training and starts them on a path to improving the overall health and wellness of our communities.
