Graduate Medical Education Programs
I wish to welcome you to the residency programs of Gwinnett Medical Center. Our hospital system has taken a bold and important step in building training programs for family medicine and internal medicine. These programs will be dually accredited by both the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), providing for the training of MDs and DOs in primary care.
We welcomed our first class of family medicine residents in June 2014 followed by our first class of internal medicine residents, including one PGY2 resident, in June 2015. We have a total of 16 residents. In addition, we are launching our transitional year program in July 2016 and will match our first class for that program around that time.
Our faculty practices in Lawrenceville, Georgia, and the surrounding communities. Our goal is to recruit, train and place primary care providers in suburban and rural Georgia. We believe this program will greatly benefit our region and improve the health of our communities.
