You can bring healing to entire families. Learn how through a Geisinger family medicine residency. 

About us

Mandy Maneval, MD, PhD, program director

Greetings from Lewistown, Pa.!

It’s my honor to introduce you to our residency program as you explore the next step in your career. We’re located in beautiful central Pennsylvania, surrounded by hills and valleys that are 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 and New York City. 

Our program is unopposed and offers educational opportunities at other Geisinger facilities and with most specialties. It is a unique collaborative effort between Family Practice Center and Geisinger, based on a long-term relationship and a mutual desire to bring the best care to our area. Our partnership allows us to combine modern, innovative care with “old-fashioned” family medicine. Many of the teaching faculty in our program have worked in this area their entire careers. They are dedicated to this community and our program. Our teaching faculty’s enthusiasm truly sets us apart from other programs!

If you share our passion for family medicine, particularly in rural or underserved areas, consider making our program your home for the next three years. When joining our program, you (and any pets, spouses and children) become part of our family now and into the future. We take care of each other and strive for a respectful environment where we can simultaneously challenge and support residents like you. Wellness and well-being are important to us — they’re part of our core values!

Feel free to reach out to learn more. Choosing a residency is challenging. We’re here to make your decision easier.

Thank you for considering our program!
