We are pleased to offer a new, innovative and exciting opportunity for you as a Family Medicine Resident. The Teaching Health Center Family Medicine Residency is a vision shared by Cornerstone Care Inc., a group of Federally Qualified Health Centers in southwestern Pennsylvania; Monongalia General Hospital in Morgantown, West Virginia; and Mountain State Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institutions, Inc.(MSOPTI). This program provides a number of features to help you attain your career goals, combining all the amenities of a large university community - access to cultural, educational, and entertainment activities - with a small town atmosphere in rural surroundings.
Our program provides a broad inpatient experience, to allow residents to feel confident practicing hospital-based medicine. Mon General Hospital is a 189-bed facility with state of the art technology, an outstanding physician staff, and a highly respected reputation in the tri-state area. The ambulatory care component of our program takes place in Cornerstone Care Continuity of Care Clinics and other affiliated physician offices. The Cornerstone Care Health Centers provide a full spectrum of family medicine experiences including comprehensive medical care for many of the underserved patients in the region, exposing the program residents to exceptional training in rural medicine.
Our Family Medicine Residency Program, approved by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) for a total of 12 residents, accepted our first class of residents in July 2013 and offers a generous compensation and benefits package. Because this is an unopposed residency program, you will not have to compete for patients or procedures, will always be first in line in teaching and have the ability to complete most all your rotations within the system. During the 2nd and 3rd year of your training, opportunities are available to spend more focused rotation time in specialty training tracks for sports medicine, behavioral medicine, geriatrics or women’s health, if you desire.
Now is the time to join the Cornerstone Care Residency Team. As we look to the future, our facilities are committed and enthused about training the next generation of family physicians. The information presented here on our site will give you a good feel for the foundation of our program. If you are interested in learning more, I would enjoy the opportunity to speak with you.
