We are searching for a forward-thinking, progressive physician-educator experienced in, and dedicated to, rural family practice, to join the faculty of our Family Medicine residency program to help train the next generation of providers. Our highly successful program, now in its fifth decade of producing highly-skilled, ethical and compassionate family medicine physicians to serve rural populations throughout Kentucky and elsewhere, 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 5 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.
Our inpatient facility at Baptist Health Madisonville is a highly-advanced medical center, licensed at 410 beds, offering a full slate of services across a wide range of primary care and specialist disciplines. We serve a six-county, mostly rural area with a population base of greater than 150,000. Our faculty are expected to be dedicated physician educators, with 80% of their time spent in teaching activities and 20% involved in clinical practice in our residency clinic. Substantial faculty time is protected for teaching and administrative use in the program. Faculty spend two half-days seeing patients, with a maximum of 8-10 patients per half-day. Hospital admissions from the faculty practice are admitted to the Residency Inpatient Service. We offer extremely competitive salary and benefits in a very low-cost-of-living area.
Our community of Madisonville, Kentucky is a small town that is constantly growing closer to achieving the status of the town motto: The Best Town on Earth. Although we are a small community, with all the charm and warmth one would expect, we also have a wide variety of amenities to enhance our quality of life. We have, for instance, a large performing arts center, located on the campus of Madisonville Community College, which is the largest facility in the state system. We are also home to a regional campus of Murray State University. We have an extensive network of city parks and there are a number of state parks located nearby. We are located an hour from the Land Between the Lakes National Recreational Area which offers unlimited opportunity for outdoor and aquatic fun for people of all ages. Our local school district is rated as distinguished by the state board of education and we enjoy very affordable housing and a low cost of living. For urban pursuits, we are located 50 miles from the metropolitan area of Evansville, Indiana, 90 miles from Nashville, Tennessee and 240 miles from St. Louis.
