Training in Family Medicine includes inpatient and outpatient care. Residents are exposed to a wide range of clinical services, a comprehensive variety of medical disciplines and a diverse patient population. The program supports two outpatient sites — located in Grove City and Whitehall, Ohio, where residents averaged more than 34,000 patient encounters last year. Additionally, the program maintains an active inpatient presence with residents caring for general medical, critical care and acute care needs, including code blues, sepsis alerts and Rapid Assessment Team calls.

The faculty includes 10 full-time and two part-time physicians, as well as a dedicated behaviorist. All faculty members are board certified in Family Medicine with special interest ranging from maternal-child health, obstetrics, geriatrics, addiction medicine, women’s health, hospice and diabetes management.

Program Goal

Grant Family Medicine is a three-year, ACGME-approved, family medicine residency designed to develop a family physician who is an expert in providing continuing comprehensive and personal care to patients and their families.

Didactics

Residents have the opportunity to attend a wide variety of excellent teaching conferences during their training. An eighteen-month curriculum of topics from Rakel's Textbook of Family Medicine is presented on Wednesday afternoons, and interdisciplinary case rounds take place on all other weekdays at noon. These lectures and case rounds are led by family medicine faculty, specialists of the hospital, outside physicians and other professionals.

Once a month, Grand Rounds will be presented by the Family Medicine Residents and will be available to all Grant hospital staff.

Geriatrics

Geriatrics is a great part of our training program. We have an ongoing affiliation with Summit's Trace and Wexner Heritage Village an assisted living facilities. During the course of your training here at Grant, you will regularly visit patients at these facilities. Topics relevant to geriatric issues are presented each month. We are proud to say that our institution has just added a Geriatrics Fellowship, which is headed by our Program Co-Director, Dr. Robert Skully. His widespread recognition for geriatric expertise and additional certification in geriatrics through the American Board of Family Physicians make him a strong asset to our residency program.
