Rehoboth McKinley Christian Health Care Services announced that it received approval to build a family medicine residency program from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. The ACGME monitors and sets U.S. professional educational standards in preparing physicians to deliver medical care.
The approval will allow future doctors to receive their residency training in a real-world medical facility at RMCHCS’s College Clinic. Upon graduation in 2024, physicians will be encouraged to open family practices in the Gallup area.
