The mission of the St. Claire Rural Training Track Residency Program is to create and retain future partners in delivering a Healing Ministry to our rural populations by focusing on the Heart of Family Medicine.
Welcome to St. Claire Regional's Rural Training Track Residency in Family Medicine! We have a long tradition of celebrating rural Family Physicians and their practice beginning with St. Claire's namesake, Claire Louis Caudill, MD. Dr. Caudill delivered more than 8,000 babies in the Morehead area during her career. In 1994, Dr. Louise was named Country Doctor of the Year. The winner of the 1993 National Rural Health Association's Outstanding Rural Practice Award. St. Claire's staff is proud of its history and looks forward to a future of quality care and service to its communities.
We have long relied on Family Physicians to deliver excellent comprehensive care to the underserved in the counties surrounding us and feel that we can help shape future leaders in rural health delivery and advocacy. Most importantly, we will provide the tools to help you to become an outstanding Family Physician.
Working as a rural Family Physician is a privilege and an honor. Every day I am touched by many people who share so many aspects of their lives with me just because I am their doctor. We really make a difference in our patients' lives. All of us on the faculty are real world doctors and midwives who maintain robust comprehensive practices in a collaborative setting. Here at St. Claire we truly care for our patients throughout the entire life cycle in a family-centered way.
Come give us a look! We welcome third and fourth year medical students to our medical center for a trial run, through one of many rotations supported by the Northeast Kentucky AHEC, also located at St. Claire. We bet you'll enjoy the challenges and want to come back.
