The family medicine training program is 36 months in duration and meets all the basic requirements, including the first-year internship.
The continuity-of-care training requirement will be filled in a continuity family practice clinic operated by Wellmont Health System and dedicated solely for the purpose of training residents. Residents will create their own panel of patients. These patients will present to their resident for each subsequent visit, except in emergencies. Residents should care for hospitalized patients from their panel who are admitted to their hospital training site or sites.
The first-year resident will spend half a day each week for the entire year in the continuity-of-care training site. During years two and three, each resident will spend an average of three half-days per week at the continuity-of-care clinic.
