Thank you for your interest in our nationally renowned residency program!
As our health care system continues to evolve, there is no question that our specialty will remain pivotal in addressing the health care needs of our country.
We’re excited about the strong teaching experience we’re able to offer our residents, and about the high-caliber students we’ve attracted to our program over the past several decades.
Memorial Family Medicine Residency has been on the frontlines of care during the pandemic. Our health care system and program prioritized the safety and education of our residents throughout the pandemic, exemplifying the supportive environment provided by Memorial.

In 2018, Memorial Residency was recognized by the ACGME for fostering a respectful and supportive learning environment for its residents by receiving the Baldwin Award. Although we don’t strive to win awards in our everyday work, this reflects the support and partnership we have with Memorial Hospital and Beacon Health System and is illustrative of the exceptional experience our residents receive. With only three such awards given in the country annually, this confirms what we’ve known all along – we are a place where you can thrive at work!

9-9-9 Unopposed Residency
We are a 9-9-9 unopposed residency program located in South Bend, IN. Being the only residency in the hospital gives our residents ample hands-on experience with rich learning opportunities. All of our residents learn by doing and have a level of autonomy that challenges them while still providing a safety net of informed and engaged faculty members who ensure no one gets left behind during training.
We offer several different curricular options to individualize learning and goals for each resident without compromising the essential broad training base of full spectrum family medicine for all. We have three fellowship options for residents who want to expand their training: Sports Medicine, Obstetrics and a unique Health Service Management fellowship that offers a longitudinally integrated Masters in Public Affairs degree from Indiana University. We are constantly evaluating and re-evaluating our curricular offerings to try to help, not only the family medicine physician of today, but what our residents will need to know to stay up to date in the future.
Family Medicine Residency in South Bend, Indiana
Our clinic space was expanded and modernized in 2016 to offer state of the art resources for our patients and providers. Our benefits package is excellent, supporting our residents through their training years, while also providing technological support with a laptop and access to electronic medical resources.
With family medicine remaining at the core of our community’s healthcare model, South Bend continues to be an excellent location to train and practice as a family physician. South Bend is a moderate- sized city which is family friendly, has plenty of local attractions with the added benefit of being in close proximity to Chicago and Indianapolis for those seeking a bigger city atmosphere.
There are many factors that make Memorial an amazing place to train, but above all else, the people, (our “Memorial Family”), are what make us great, and we are extremely proud of our residents and alumni.
If you’d like to learn more, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, browse our website or visit our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages. Our program uses the ERAS system and only accepts residents through the NRMP match. We are excited for the 2022-2023 interview season and remain primed to offer interviews in whatever avenue is safest. We plan to start interviews in October and continue through January.
I sincerely hope you will visit us so we may share with you our enthusiasm for the work we’re doing here at Memorial Hospital!
