Dr Dixon Freeman, DIOWelcome and thank you for your interest in Redmond Regional Medical Center’s Graduate Medical Education programs! Rome, Georgia, is located about an hour from Atlanta and Chattanooga, Tennessee, and has long been a hub for medical education. Redmond’s Internal Medicine Residency welcomed the first class of residents in 2016 and the Transitional Year Residency began in 2017. Both programs have demonstrated success in placing graduates into practice in both hospital and outpatient settings; and further training in residencies such as emergency medicine, anesthesiology, physical medicine/rehabilitation, radiology, and dermatology, as well as prestigious fellowships at the Medical College of Georgia and Duke University.

Here you will learn state of the art 21st century medicine. Our faculty are the products of many of the finest training programs in the country. We are supported by local physicians in all settings, inpatient and outpatient, including the Harbin Clinic, the state’s largest physician-owned multi-specialty clinic. Opportunities for teaching medical students abound through our affiliations with the Medical College of Georgia, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (Georgia Campus), and other institutions in the state and throughout the region.

Our programs were started under the leadership of Nashville, TN-based HCA Healthcare, the largest provider of graduate medical education in the country. In 2021 it was announced that the institution would be transferred to Orlando, FL-based AdventHealth, joining its rapidly growing infrastructure in medical education. But the priorities remain the same. Redmond is committed to meeting the healthcare needs of our local community and region with world class clinical care. We recognize and address the areas of greatest need in innovative ways. Graduate Medical Education is an ambition to provide for those needs by preparing compassionate and competent physicians for practice and service.

I invite you to continue exploring our programs, both online or in person if feasible. Please don’t hesitate to contact us for any further information we can provide. While the pandemic has presented challenges to the entire healthcare system, this is an exciting time for medical education in Rome at Redmond and we hope you will become a part of our future.
