Jackson Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program Now Accepting New Patients

MONTGOMERY, Ala., (July 10, 2023) – The Jackson Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program Clinic is now accepting new patients in the Montgomery area.

Patients will be seen by appointment in a traditional private practice setting under the guidance of our experienced faculty. The Family Medicine Residency Clinic providers practice in conjunction with The Jackson Clinic. Our program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).

The Family Medicine Residency Program at Jackson Hospital offers 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. The program also focuses on the need to address family dynamics and community interactions in the treatment of patients.

“Jackson Hospital and Clinic is proud to be part of the solution when it comes to improving access to healthcare in the River Region. Opening the new Jackson Hospital and Clinic Family Medicine Residency provides a way to train new family physicians and help locate them in the River Region and Alabama’s underserved areas,” says Program Director Thomas Horton, MD.
