About Us

Thank you for your interest in the Deaconess Family Medicine Residency!Scott Cordts, MD - Associate Director
Our program strives to customize your educational experience to ensure maximum potential in personal growth and learning.  As a result, we target outstanding students who are motivated toward excellence in everything they do and thrive in a nurturing team-based setting.
Because Deaconess is an 8-8-8 single program institution at a regional referral center in the Tri-State, our residents receive exposure to a broad range of pathology throughout their hands-on learning experiences directly alongside outstanding and supportive faculty and community attending physicians.  Our system of progressive responsibility ensures that residents have appropriate autonomy and supervision in their patient care duties as they advance through the program. 
Located in Southwestern Indiana, Evansville is a moderate-sized, family-friendly city with a small town feel.  Numerous local attractions, events, and outdoor activities allow our residents the opportunity to relax and unwind. Indianapolis, Louisville, Nashville, and St. Louis are only a short drive away for those seeking big city amenities.
For over 40 years, Deaconess has trained well-rounded family physicians to deliver compassionate and quality medical care to patients in their respective communities.  Our flexible curriculum along with our commitment to foster individual resident’s leadership development and personal wellness provide the perfect environment in which to learn family medicine.  Come visit us and see how Deaconess can help prepare you for a rewarding career of servant leadership!
