Welcome to the ETSU Family Physicians of Bristol website. Our residency program is located in a beautiful region of Southern Appalachia, with amenities that make it appealing at both professional and personal levels. We are one of three fully-accredited family medicine programs administered by East Tennessee State University, a national leader in training primary care physicians and recognized for its efforts to provide experiences in rural health care.
While much of the educational experience emphasizes rural healthcare, our residents
come from diverse backgrounds with varied interests and career goals. Our faculty
is energetic and committed to providing quality training in family medicine, and we
strive to direct our training to the residents career needs while helping them become
We recognize that family medicine is not just a career, it is an attitude. For this reason, we believe that a residency program must not only provide a solid educational experience, but it must remain supportive of family and personal life, as well. In Bristol, we think we have achieved this balance.
Please explore our website and get to know our program. If you are a medical student looking for a residency program that provides excellent training in a scenic and friendly environment, feel free to spend some time with us. We would love to hear from you.
