Residency Program


MAHEC Family Medicine Residency

Hendersonville, NC

Blue Ridge Health is a clinical sponsor of the MAHEC Hendersonville Rural Family Medicine Residency Program. Family medicine residents practice whole-person care, training for three years in our non-profit organization and serving a broad range of people in Western North Carolina. They study rural medicine and are empowered to face the unique barriers that keep people from seeking necessary healthcare services.

Family medicine residents rotate with local specialists and take care of our Blue Ridge Health patients who need hospitalization for acute illness or injury. They also do full pregnancy care, from the first prenatal visit through delivery. They care for newborns in both the hospital and in the office. They serve patients in all stages of life, coordinating care and building relationships with our friends and neighbors in the region.

In addition to the Family Medicine Residency Program, we also offer patient care and learning opportunities to students and residents in other specialties, such as psychiatry and internal medicine.


Our Lasting Impact

The communities of Western North Carolina are filled with both opportunities and challenges for healthcare providers. Our residents and faculty work hard to reduce the inequalities in well-being and access to healthcare faced by rural populations, which include increased substance use issues, lack of transportation, and high mortality rates. Enhanced service lines that have been started because of the Family Medicine Residency Program include Enhanced OB Care – including prenatal visits and delivery at Pardee Hospital – as well as Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT), Transgender Health, Enhanced access to providers at our 7th Avenue outreach clinic, and much more.
