A comprehensive education for family physicians
Thank you for your interest in Mercy Medical Center and the Mercy Family Medicine Residency Program.
Primary care is one of the most challenging medical disciplines to master. That’s why, since 1997, the faculty and attending staff of Mercy Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, have worked together to develop one of the nation’s most comprehensive and enriching educational programs — the Mercy Family Medicine Residency Program. The three-year program emphasizes a close working relationship between residents and an exceptional team of faculty physicians, managers, ancillary personnel and associate faculty physicians. Because each of these professionals understands the crucial value of residency, the Mercy program stresses developing you as a doctor and a professional by providing hands-on training throughout your residency. Working side-by-side with some of the region’s most respected medical professionals, you’ll learn in the program’s multimillion-dollar Family Medicine Residency Center, a 17,000 square-foot technologically advanced facility dedicated to the study and practice of family medicine.
In addition to an unsurpassed educational experience, we provide attractive stipends, complimentary meals, a housing allowance, personal digital assistant and several references — all vital tools in the successful practice of family medicine.
Through these and many other benefits, we believe the Mercy Family Medicine Residency Program offers you the best opportunity to master family medicine and succeed in your future medical endeavors.
