Family Medicine Residency Program
Three Years of Dynamic Learning
Guthrie Family Medicine residents reap the benefits of the highest quality medical training delivered in an environment of teamwork and personal attention. The program’s smaller size allows residents to become essential members of the team, building genuine camaraderie between residents and attending physicians. Residents learn traditional medicine as well as the latest medical technology from experienced physicians, supported by a multidisciplinary team of nurse practitioners, physician assistants, athletic trainers, and psychologists.
Residents see patients in a variety of clinical settings. Guthrie sub-specialists are an integral part of the medical education culture and are readily accessible and welcome the opportunity to consult.
Our Family Medicine residency is a dually-accredited AOA/ACGME program with a combined internship/family medicine residency (as opposed to a separate, rotating internship and two-year family medicine residency). Dual accreditation allows the resident to become board-certified by the ABFM and the ABOFM, providing the optimal environment for education and personal growth. The osteopathic intern is an integral part of the Family Medicine residency team and functions as a first-year Family Medicine Resident while simultaneously fulfilling the requirements of the Osteopathic Internship. The PGYII and PGY III years are a continuation of this training.
Guthrie Family Medicine Residents can focus on a variety of areas depending upon their interests and future practice needs. Some of these include obstetrics, urgent care, sports medicine and hospitalist medicine.
Family Medicine residents at Guthrie receive broad-based preparation that includes not only standard clinical procedures, but also training in ethics, geriatrics, family-centered obstetrical care, sports medicine, occupational and preventive medicine. Our location in northeastern Pennsylvania is ideal for those interested in practicing in a rural setting, yet our status as a regional tertiary care center gives residents access to an extraordinary range of cases.
