Our goal is to prepare family physicians to thrive in rural medical practice, to develop and maintain exceptional work-life balance and to improve the health of our rural populations while helping to eliminate health disparities.
The rural residents are active in our local community and support the Pittsburg Independent School District band and sports programs with preparticipation exams and side-line sports medicine services. In addition, our residents serve as ancillary faculty for the high school teachers of Anatomy and Physiology.
The area offers affordable housing and amazing scenery. Our current chief residents share a home on the banks Lake Bob Sandlin, a mere fifteen- minute drive from the clinic. Available activities include hiking, wine tasting, fishing, hunting and camping. A wine festival is held every spring and some of the best peaches in Texas are grown within ten minutes of the clinic.
