Welcome to Whole-Person Care

Welcome to the AdventHealth Redmond Internal Medicine Residency Program. As internists, we support patients with expert knowledge and uncommon compassion for every life we touch. In our program, we teach how to think critically and administer compassionate care that strengthens the body, mind and spirit.

Our residency program is one of the largest in Georgia and is affiliated with the Medical College of Georgia (MCG) and Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM). We provide unique, personal mentorship for every resident with a faculty roster of experts with diverse backgrounds and networks.

We challenge our residents and prepare them to lead their own practices, where they can draw upon their rigorous training to tend to each patient’s unique needs. The lessons learned here will become your clinical foundation, and the memories made will last a lifetime.
