Greetings from Lewistown, Pa.!
It is my honor to introduce you to our residency program as you explore the next step in your career. We are in beautiful central Pennsylvania, surrounded by mountains and valleys that are especially breathtaking in the fall. Geisinger Lewistown Hospital, where our residency calls home, is in a rural and underserved area with easy travel to State College, Harrisburg, Philadelphia or New York City.
Our program is unopposed and offers educational opportunities with most specialties and at other Geisinger facilities. Our program is a unique collaborative effort between Family Practice Center and Geisinger, based upon a long-term relationship and mutual desire to bring the very best care to our area. Our partnership allows us to bring modern, innovative care and “old fashioned” family medicine together. Many of the teaching faculty in our program have worked in this area for their entire careers. They love and are dedicated to this community and to our program. The enthusiasm of our teaching faculty is truly one of the things that set us apart!
If you share our passion for family medicine, particularly in a rural or underserved area, we hope that you will consider making our program your home for the next three years. When joining our program, you (and any pets, spouses and/or children), become part of our family now and into the future. We take care of each other and strive for a respectful environment in which we can simultaneously challenge and support our residents. Wellness and well-being are important to us – it is part of our core values!
Feel free to reach out to learn more. We understand that choosing a residency is challenging. We are here to help make your decision easier.
Thank you for considering our program!
