Samaritan Medical Center is dedicated to producing competent, maximally skilled osteopathic primary care Internists in three years, with comprehensive training and balanced experience in a wide variety of clinical settings to meet the needs of the communities they will serve across the country. This training will be based on the educational goals and objectives in the Core Curriculum for Internal Medicine, as defined by the American College of Internal Medicine (ACOIM) and the American Osteopathic Association (AOA).
The Osteopathic Traditional/Transitional Residency Year at Samaritan Medical Center is fully accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) for six (6) Intern positions. It can also be used to fulfill ACGME, PGY-I requirements, making the choice of a follow-on residency much more available and appealing. The program has exceeded all expectations by the AOA oversight bodies, the schools, and most importantly, the students and has evolved into a great platform to support Samaritan Medical Center’s Residency Programs.
Samaritan strives to provide an exceptional, comprehensive, yet individualized residency training experience for physicians dedicated to a career in family medicine. It is our intent to shape resident physicians into caring, compassionate doctors with sufficient self-assurance to provide excellent family-focused care in any environment.
Third- and fourth-year osteopathic medical students can choose to fulfill training site requirements with us at Samaritan Medical Center in a variety of disciplines.
