Family Medicine Residency
The Family Medicine Residency program at St. Joseph Health Center has a total of six residency spots - typically accepting two new residents into the program each year.
Each resident is on call every fifth or sixth week - depending on the number of residents in the program at the time. Each resident is required to serve one month per year as a night float/house officer. This consists of Monday through Friday, 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. (no holidays or weekends.) During that month there are no call or clinic responsibilities.
We offer a very family friendly environment and residents are treated like practicing physicians - well respected by hospital staff and other attendings.
Hospital didactics are held weekly and include robot OMM Training as well as simulation labs with our wireless SimMan and many other simulations models. Our residents also participate in OUHCOM ( Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine) CORE program with the other CORE F.M. programs throughout the state of Ohio.
