Welcome from our Program Director

Welcome! We are delighted that you are interested in our Program. Our first class of residents begins in July 2021! As a new program, we have much to offer and look forward to building its future with you.

The TriStar Southern Hills Family Medicine Residency Program’s goal is to educate the next generation of compassionate, comprehensive family medicine physicians.

Mission Statement

The TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program’s mission is to develop the next generation of physicians and physician leaders. As a part of HCA Healthcare, we are driven by a single mission: Above all else, we are committed to the care and improvement of human life.

This program is designed to offer residents a rewarding, educational environment where residents are provided individualized learning opportunities by faculty and staff who support and sustain one another throughout quality care delivery. Our faculty are committed to ensuring the residents' clinical experience and educational needs are fulfilled while expanding residents’ perspectives to be inclusive of cultures, values, and ideals.

Program Overview

The Family Medicine Residency Program at TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center is an ACGME-accredited, structured three-year program focused on providing our residents with the experiences needed to provide comprehensive care to patients of any age.

Our residency program offers academically and clinically rigorous training, and our dedicated faculty support our trainees with experience to enhance their medical knowledge, patient care skills, practice-based learning, systems-based practice, professionalism, and interpersonal skills.

The curriculum is designed to provide broad clinical exposure in acute and chronic care occurring in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings. Our trainees earn a great degree of autonomy in overseeing patient care as they demonstrate growth in the ACGME competencies.

We are affiliated with TriStar Southern Hills Medical Center, a 126-bed hospital that has provided high-quality healthcare to citizens of Davidson and surrounding counties for over 40 years. The hospital is committed to providing excellent training opportunities, and the residents will work closely alongside collegial attending physicians.

As a graduate of our program, you will be capable of independently caring for all age groups, managing complex medical conditions and performing common office procedures.
