A Message from Victor H. Agbeibor to the 2019 Family Medicine Match Candidates
Our vision is to train America's family physicians by providing a fully integrated curriculum that incorporates all the tenets of family medicine, including academics, research, urban, rural, obstetrics, sports medicine and even global medicine.
We graduate six residents a year. Of our six graduates last year, two entered private practice, one is a hospitalist, one joined our team to continue academic family medicine, one works as an urgent care/emergency medicine physician, and the last one is pursuing a sports medicine fellowship. This reflects the wide range of experience available in our program.
Our clinical experiences are very diverse - from rotations in the inner city at Richmond Community Hospital to our rural program in Blackstone, Virginia, as well as our suburban experience at St. Francis Medical Center to working on the Care-A-Van (a mobile van serving the underserved in our community).
Our residents experience a wide variety of settings and have opportunities to be involved in global medical work in Ghana, Peru, South Africa, Haiti, the Dominican Republic and Ecuador.
We are well supported by our not-for-profit health system, Bon Secours Health System, arguably one of the premier health systems in the U.S. with its dedicated and visionary leadership.
Finally, I would be remiss if I didn’t tell you about the most beautiful hospital in America. Our primary training site, St. Francis Medical Center, was recently voted America’s Most Beautiful Hospital. Having opened in 2005, this welcoming, state-of-the-art facility offers the latest in digital technology while embracing an architectural celebration of the American spirit.
If this sounds appealing to you, please forward your application to us. We review every single application, taking your time and interest very seriously.
My very best wishes to each one of you.
