Kingman Regional Medical Center - Family Medicine Residency

Welcome to Family Medicine Residency Program at Kingman Regional Medical Center! We thank you for your interest in our program and are excited about what we can share with you. Our program emphasizes a curriculum to ensure our graduates are well trained for the challenges in healthcare today. Faculty and residents work together so our patients’ needs are met in the physical, psychological and preventative aspects of care. Working together, the faculty and residents are continually reevaluating our program and curriculum to adapt to the ever-increasing complexity and sophistication of health care. Our effort is directed toward combining current trends in family medicine training with a strong background in clinical skills, while attempting to tailor the training to the needs and interests of each resident. We are currently AOA accredited and have received pre-accreditation from the ACGME.

Kingman is located in the northwest part of Arizona with a population of 30,000. Billed as the “Heart of Historic Route 66”, Kingman has over 60 buildings on the National Historic Register. It also is a good base for exploring wilderness areas offering hiking and camping opportunities. At the elevation of 3,300 feet, we enjoy the seasons here with summers in the high 90’s and occasional snow flurries in the winter.

Our Mission

The Kingman Regional Medical Center’s (KRMC) mission is to provide Family Medicine Resident Trainees with an experience designed to develop knowledge base of current medicine. The Family Medicine Residency Program strives to train learners from diverse backgrounds and develop them into independent and competent Family Physicians who are highly skilled in providing comprehensive and patient centered care. These graduates will be well equipped with the proficiency to be healthcare advocates for their patients and families and to be leaders in the community.

Program Aims

Aim 1: Resident trainees will complete 36 months of a progressive family medicine curriculum guided by the goals for this program to ensure resident trainees master the core competencies of the ACGME and AOA.

Aim 2: The Family Medicine Residency will continue to use curriculum that mirrors the required Family Practice Core Curriculum.

Aim 3: Resident trainees will be presented with comprehensive cognitive and procedural clinical education in both the inpatient and outpatient settings that will enable them to become competent, proficient and professional physicians.

Aim 4: Didactic sessions will be held five-hours weekly on Thursdays with lecture topics being determined by systematic approach with each month, rotations such as integrating adult care, pediatric, radiologic, dermatologic, and Osteopathic Principals and Practices (OPP). As well as other topics.

Aim 5: After satisfactory completion of three years of Family Medicine residency training, residents will be eligible to sit for the certifying examination conducted by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians (AOBFP) and /or the American Board of Family Medicine Accreditation (ABFM).
