Experience Makes Us

Education by practice. Cultivating a new generation of physicians today.

Cape Fear Valley Health System's residency programs are designed to provide the highest quality residency programs that will provide each trainee a foundation for lifelong learning while fulfilling the accrediting bodies knowledge and competency requirements.

Our Vision for the graduates of each of our programs is to:

  • Train residents who deliver compassionate, high quality patient care
  • Encourage residents to achieve academic and clinical excellence
  • Create an outstanding learning environment for young physicians
  • Provide value to the community where the resident chooses to practice
  • Provide guidance to residents that will enable them to provide the best possible care to all patients while being good stewards of available healthcare resources

Cape Fear Valley Health System's teaching faculty will provide "hands-on" experience while educating the physicians of tomorrow. Our teaching faculty members are clinically active physicians who are committed to providing the best possible learning experience for our trainees. Each of our teaching faculty strives to provide a patient-centric, evidence-based medicine educational experience. Residents will be given primary patient care responsibility with faculty readily available to teach and mentor them throughout their training.

Patient-centric teaching that emphasizes practice-based learning, evidence-based medicine, and the importance of professionalism and effective interpersonal communication skills will be used throughout the program whether at one of our hospitals, the ambulatory care site, or affiliated institutions.

At Cape Fear Valley, we are excited about educating the next generation of physicians. Our hospital has many great opportunities, and we're growing. We're here to support you as you discover your passion in medicine. To discover all that Cape Fear Valley has to offer you, click here!
