Reid Malcolm, DO

I was drawn to Geisinger’s internal medicine residency because, as a program at a large tertiary care facility, it offers exposure to all specialties and diverse pathology. I have a young family, and the Susquehanna Valley is a welcoming, family-friendly place to live with no shortage of fun things to do. The program places a strong influence on education, and I was excited about being able to participate in a dedicated clinician- educator track. These factors and the amazing people here make Geisinger a great place to grow into the kind of physician you want to be.”
