Our ACGME-certified residency program continuously strives to achieve top standards in teaching patient care, as demonstrated by our Level 3 NCQA Patient-Centered Medical Home Recognition status. We are part of one of the largest osteopathic training sites in the United States.
It includes a robust ambulatory experience that goes beyond what can be expected of most family residency programs. Extensive ambulatory training occurs in our state-of-the-art Family Practice Center in Grove City, where patients make appointments for outpatient medical and preventive care. Here, junior residents see patients four to five half-days per week in the second year, and senior residents see patients four to five half-days per week, when not on a full month out rotation.
Our residents also rotate through OhioHealth Doctors Hospital and the world-renowned Nationwide Children’s Hospital for in-patient rotation experiences.
A strong emphasis is placed on teaching and performing in-office procedures, including nexplanon and IUD insertions/removals, rhinolaryngoscopy, colposcopy, endometrial biopsy, minor skin procedures, joint injection/aspiration, vasectomy and cryotherapy.
Our program is designed to ensure residents experience success and well-being during their years of training. It includes but is not limited to the following:
We foster an environment of collaboration between residents, faculty and the medical community to support research pursuits. To that end, our family residency program offers protected time set aside for research, as well as access to the experts and resources at the OhioHealth Research and Innovation Institute. Residents further have support from a collaborative Doctors Hospital Family Practice research committee and faculty research advisors.
Residents at the Doctors Hospital Family Practice Residency are actively engaged in a variety of community service projects. Our community work provides residents the opportunity to build competence in treating diverse patients in a variety of settings.This includes the OhioHealth Wellness on Wheels 54-foot mobile unit that brings primary care services to residents of underserved neighborhoods.
We are proud to announce that OhioHealth has been named one of the "100 Best Companies to Work For" for the 12th consecutive year by FORTUNE Magazine!Read More
