Welcome From the Program Director

Michael Gillan, DOGreetings!

Thank you for your interest in the Sayre Family Medicine Residency at Guthrie. It is my pleasure and honor to serve as the Program Director.

First, a little background about our residency. The program was founded in 1993 and has had over 100 since then. We have Osteopathic recognition with the ACGME. Our robust inpatient service and outpatient clinical practice allow us to provide continuity care across multiple settings and, additionally, we have a rapidly evolving Telemedicine practice in the era of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite the setbacks that the pandemic has brought into all our of our lives, I am glad that your path has led you towards Family Medicine and specifically to our residency.

Despite all the changes in our world with the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to hold true to our mission statement. The program continues to support “students and residents by providing exceptional learning opportunities that prepare them to practice the full scope of family medicine. We prepare residents to provide compassionate, integrated, clinically-advanced care within a rural setting.” We obtain that goal through our diverse faculty, community preceptors, and specialists. Many of these providers are graduates of Guthrie’s residency programs themselves, including me.

I look forward to meeting you and working with you in the future!
