A message from Sireesha Vemuri-Reddy, MD, NIPDD, FAAFP
Chief of Hospitalist Medicine
Family Medicine Program Director
Aiken Regional Medical Centers is looking forward to the 2022 launch of a community-based Family Medicine Residency Program that will serve a broad group of patients, supervising physician teachers and employees. Residents will be taught by both Aiken Regional medical staff and community-based academic members.
The mission of the Family Medicine Residency Program at Aiken Regional is to train competent, compassionate and conscientious physicians in the full scope of family medicine practice. The program includes training that will have a strong emphasis on professionalism, teamwork and evidence-based practice; residents will receive their training in a nurturing environment that focuses on well-being and all-around development as a family medicine physician. Upon conclusion of training, residents will have the knowledge and experience needed to bridge the gaps in care wherever they choose to practice, whether that’s within Aiken County and the surrounding areas or other parts of the state or country. Should graduates choose to practice in other areas of the state or country, their practice will be a reflection of the quality of education within our program and values encouraged in our setting.
The Family Medicine Residency Program at Aiken Regional is dedicated to the achievement of equity for medical trainees from all racial backgrounds, ethnicities, socioeconomic levels, religions, gender identities, sexual orientations and abilities. Our program is committed to equity in recruitment, education, mentorship and professional advancement for all trainees. At Aiken Regional, diversity in the family medicine program will be achieved through a successful and inclusive search process that will need forethought, patience and intentionality. Our program will use best practices in diversity and inclusion to promote a positive and supportive educational environment. The program will develop objective, unbiased standards for evaluating applicants during recruitment and selection, and conduct faculty development training on implicit bias.
Thank you for your consideration. I hope the material on this website reflects my vision for our program. My objective and passion is to train competent, ethical and informed individuals who will provide excellent service to our citizens.
The curriculum for our three-year program consists of rotations at a wide variety of patient care areas throughout the hospital.
