    LewisGale Medical Center is part of the HCA Healthcare Family

    The nation's leading provider of quality, patient-centered care is also the leader in graduate medical education (GME). From the moment a graduate joins an HCA Healthcare residency or fellowship, they are mentored by a dynamic network of physicians who are focused on teaching them to provide the exceptional, compassionate care our patients deserve. These programs are led by an accomplished faculty, set under rigorous standards, and tailored to provide extensive training for the next generation of physician leaders.

    Welcome to Lewis-Gale Medical Center and our new Graduate Medical Education (GME) programs. We are excited to enable our participants to train in an environment within an active community Medical Center where they have the opportunity to rotate into the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Salem. In addition to the new GME facilities, our exceptionally skilled faculty serve as invaluable teachers and mentors to the residents as they utilize a variety of resources.

    Our Internal Medicine residency welcomed its inaugural class in 2017, Psychiatry in 2018, and Family Medicine in 2019. As part of the GME expansion plans, we anticipate broadening the opportunities to include Emergency Medicine - with an inaugural class beginning in summer 2020 - followed by Transitional Year and medicine subspecialties. With these additions by the year 2022, we will have over 140 trainees.

    Since research is so important in the medical field, we place an emphasis on our experienced faculty providing residents with the best possible education, training, and support with those research projects and presentations in mind.

    Ultimately, our goal is to produce exceptional clinicians by providing them with the appropriate tools, resources, experiences, support and opportunities to be successful. We invite you to explore the many options and benefits that are available through our extensive GME programs.
