Family Medicine Residency

The ACGME-accredited Family Medicine Residency training program at Good Samaritan Hospital is a three-year academic program. The residency encompasses all aspects of training necessary to produce family practitioners proficient in treating 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 HRHCare Martin Luther King, Jr. Health Center at Wyandanch. This health center represents the mutually-cooperative endeavor of HRHCare Health Organization, Good Samaritan Hospital, and the community to provide family health care to the population of Wyandanch and its surrounding areas. 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 lectures, 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 PGY III Family Medicine year, all residents must have completed a paper of publishable quality based upon their own research.
