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.
