Graduate Medical Education

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

Since 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.

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 form of Grand Rounds, Primary Care Conferences, specialty conferences, and informal case reviews.

Research is also conducted while these Medical Students are a part of the Graduate Medical Education program here at Samaritan Medical Center. Follow the link to listen to Dr. Benjamin Rudd and Dr. Shervin Shahriari discuss what research has been recently conducted in an interview at 7NEWS WWNYTV in Watertown.
