Family Medicine Residency
The Family Medicine Residency program at Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center is a three-year academic program. The residency encompasses all aspects of training necessary to produce Family Practitioners proficient in larsendotreating the diverse patient population of our region. Structured rotations in Family Medicine continuity clinics, Internal Medicine, OB/GYN, Pediatrics, Emergency Medicine, Surgery and various electives provide residents with a full complement of clinical experiences.
Integral to the training program is the Martin Luther King, Jr., Community Health Center opened on July 1, 1968. This Health Center represents the mutually cooperative endeavor of Hudson River Health Organization, Good Samaritan Hospital Medical Center, and the community to provide family health care to the poor and indignant population of Wyandanch and its environs. Here, as well as on other rotations, resident physicians work closely with attendings to ensure exposure to the full breadth of the training experience. Throughout their training, residents establish and follow a patient base of their own ensuring true continuity-of-care.
Journal clubs, case presentations, guest lecturers, and patient rounds supplemented by additional formal and informal teaching ensure the resident a full complement of academic opportunities.
Senior residents have the additional role of providing instruction and guidance to interns and students. This develops a stabilizing force, which is imperative to the productive and successful learning process of both resident and student.
By the completion of the OMGE III Family Medicine year all residents must have completed a paper of publishable quality based upon their own research.
