Osteopathic Year

Medicine-Pediatrics Residency Program

Osteopathic Year (internship certified by AOA)

We are proud to be supportive of our osteopathic residents many of whom stay in the area. In order for our osteopathic residents to be able to practice in all 50 states after graduation, your ACGME PGY-1 year must be recognized by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA- for Pennsylvania, Florida, Oklahoma) through an application, educational presentation and some materials submitted from our residency office. Here we require that of all of our osteopathic residents regardless of where they want to practice.

The intern year for our osteopathic med-peds interns differs only in one rotation. Each intern has 1-block of Emergency Medicine instead of it being split across intern and second year.

Interns should also take COMLEX Level 3 in their intern year.
