Cox Family Medicine Residency is an unopposed program that combines intellectual, academic excellence with the “real-world” experience of a community hospital. Established in 1987, we have developed a unique, engaging and exciting foundation for family medicine education.
We are located in the heart of the Ozarks in Springfield, MO. Our residency program is the only ACGME-approved program in this area. CoxHealth is our sponsoring institution and is leading the way with an integrated care system with physician input from all specialties. CoxHealth is a leading employer in the area and is recognized for its fiscal strength. The system serves a population of 900,000 in a 25-county service area.
Cox Family Medicine Residency prepares residents for full scope family medicine. All of our residents gain substantial experience in maternity care and inpatient training. Many of our graduates are now hospitalists and some graduates are performing cesarean sections without a fellowship. We believe that residents trained in full-scope family medicine will have the diverse skills necessary to thrive in any practice setting.
