About Samaritan Health

Since 1998, Samaritan Medical Center’s physicians and staff have opened their doors to Osteopathic Medical Students in order to provide a quality education for these aspiring physicians.

From the time the first student walked through our doors, the Medical Education opportunities at Samaritan have increased dramatically. The addition of an Osteopathic Internship Training Program and the creation of Osteopathic Residency Programs in both Family Medicine and Internal Medicine have solidified Samaritan’s commitment to becoming a nationally recognized Osteopathic teaching hospital.

In July of 2015, we attained Institutional Accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Our Family Medicine and Internal Medicine programs received Initial Accreditation.

The Samaritan Internal Medicine Residency provides Residents with comprehensive structured cognitive and procedural clinical education in both inpatient and outpatient settings that will enable them to become competent, proficient and professional Osteopathic Internists.

For third and fourth-year Osteopathic Medical Students, Interns and Residents, the Samaritan experience is one in which one-on-one contact with attending physicians is commonplace and opportunities for hands-on learning occur daily and weekly in the forms of Grand Rounds, Primary Care Conferences, specialty conferences and informal case reviews.

The purpose of the Samaritan Internal Medicine Residency training is to provide Residents with comprehensive structured cognitive and procedural clinical education in both inpatient and outpatient settings that will enable them to become competent, proficient and professional Osteopathic Internists.
