And all these words do indeed apply to members of AnMed's Family Medicine Residency program. But our commitment to diversity is one of the things that differentiates AnMed.

“We take our diversity seriously,” according to medical resident Amanda Davis. “Diversity is deeper than any picture. It has to do with experiences, beliefs, life stories and goals. Our patient population is very diverse as all of our faculty and residents know well from their daily walks with them through life.”
