Why Geisinger for your training?

Healthcare is changing. Interprofessionals teams, rather than a series of individual providers, now work to deliver care. Technologies like electronic health records and gene sequencing are necessary tools rather than novelties. The very foundation of medicine has shifted to focus on wellness, rather than just disease intervention, and there’s a growing recognition that people don’t stay well or get sick in a vacuum. Neighborhood, income, education – these all play a vital role in health that physicians must understand before they can see and treat the whole person.

Geisinger Commonwealth isn’t reacting to these changes – it’s leading them. As a new school born of innovation and integrated with a health system routinely held up as a national model of excellence for person-centered care, Geisinger Commonwealth offers a unique and distinct medical education. Emphasizing active learning, early clinical exposure and community engagement from day one, Geisinger Commonwealth graduates are known for caring – for authentic empathy coupled with superior clinical skills and knowledge all accompanied by an unparalleled ability to connect with patients. This is the kind of doctor who will lead the healthcare team of the future. If this is the future physician you’d like to be, Geisinger Commonwealth is the place to learn.
