Baptist Health Madisonville Family Medicine Residency has openings in our program for Core Faculty and Associate Director. If you are board-certified by the ABFM, have an interest and/or experience in teaching and would like to be part of a growing program, we are interested in speaking with you.   

Family Medicine Faculty:

We are searching for a forward-thinking, progressive physician-educator experienced in - and dedicated to, rural family practice, to join the faculty of our ACGME accredited Family Medicine Residency Program to help train the next generation of providers.  Our highly successful program is now in its fifth decade of producing highly-skilled, ethical and compassionate family medicine physicians to serve rural populations throughout Kentucky and elsewhere. It was one of the first residency programs in the country specifically dedicated to rural family medicine.

We are constantly evolving our program to incorporate the latest standards of excellence in primary care to insure our graduates are ready to begin their careers at the forefront of evidence-based medicine.  We have been, for instance, designated as a Patient Centered Medical Home by the NCQA. 

Our three-year program is home to 18 residents, supported and mentored by five faculty members (including the program director), with plans to expand to six.  This provides for extensive one-on-one mentoring, which we believe is key to the development of young physicians.  Our residency is unopposed at our medical center, so learning opportunities abound.  We are also home to a medical school program, in cooperation with the University of Louisville School of Medicine, where we train third- and fourth-year medical students who wish to pursue rural practice.  We have a pharmacy residency program, a CRNA program (in partnership with Murray State University), a nursing program and a large number of allied health training programs.  The wide range of our educational programs allows for us to learn in interdisciplinary teams, providing the best opportunity for both education and patient care.  Our residency program is also at the center of our expanding community health efforts. 

Associate Program Director:

The APD works with the program director in developing, directing, and managing the family medicine program.  The APD position ensures stability of the residency-training program, including compliance with accrediting and regulatory agencies. 

If you are a physician/educator and you are interested in being part of a progressive, dynamic, patient-centered environment where you can help re-imagine how primary care training is done, please contact and visit
