The purpose of this grant is to provide funding to Southeastern Regional Medical Center (SRMC) to assist with establishing a residency program. The American Osteopathic Association has approved the program for 92 residency positions in internal medicine, family medicine, emergency medicine, and other practice disciplines, and is expected to approve residency positions in other disciplines. Based on experience, SRMC anticipates that these residency programs will enhance the probability that participating students will put down roots and become the next generation of physicians who will practice in rural, southeastern communities. In addition to the training that will be provided for these medical students and residents, SRMC also coordinates rotations and educational opportunities for over 125 nursing, allied health and mid-level practitioner students. Golden LEAF will help support the costs of renovating the fourth floor of the hospital into a medical education center.
