Mercy Medical Center (MMC) is a 186-bed, Joint Commission accredited hospital that serves as a regional medical center for an agricultural area of central California. The Family Medicine Residency Program is the only residency program in the hospital and was established in 1974. We have 24 residents with 8 in each year. The Merced Family Medicine Residency Program is affiliated with the University of California, Davis. It was started at the urging of the medical staff because of a need for additional primary care physicians in the area.
The Residency Program has had strong support from the medical community. The residents function as primary physicians for a large number of inpatients. The respect with which the residents are treated at MMC reflects the extent of this community support.
More than half of the active medical staff are involved in the residents' training. The mission of the MMC Family Medicine Residency Program is to educate and facilitate the professional growth of family medicine residents to become high-quality family physicians and is centered around the following core philosophical concepts.
