The Internal Medicine Residency at Anderson Campus has been designated as a program with Osteopathic Recognition as designated by the American Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). We are and remain committed to educating residents in the principles of Osteopathic Medicine. The goal is to improve competency and clinical proficiency in osteopathic principles and practice. Our educational and clinical program related to this includes the following:
- Dedicated monthly education sessions in principles of osteopathic medicine with a focus of a clinical aspect
- Dedicated inpatient osteopathic rounding
- Focused monthly Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) Clinic
- Dedicated Journal Clubs and Morning Report Presentations in Osteopathic Medicine
- Dedicated Education Based Modules
- Opportunities for Scholarly Activity Regarding Aspects of Osteopathic Medicine
Programs such as ours with osteopathic recognition recognize not only the importance of the principles of osteopathic medicine but also the osteopathic philosophy of treating the whole patient. At the completion of residency training, residents would be eligible to take either the ABIM or AOBIM examinations.
We are a categorical three-year Internal Medicine Residency Program that will provide you with the skills and expertise to practice as a primary care physician, hospitalist or enter subspecialty training. A significant focus of our training, however, is your development as a primary care physician to help keep patients safe, happy and trusting in you as a physician.
