Welcome to the AOA Family Medicine Residency Program at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center.
Accredited by the AOA and the ACOFP, our dually certified program is rooted in the holistic philosophy of treating the whole person to prevent, diagnose and treat illness, disease and injury. From routine office visits to complex cardiothoracic surgical procedures, this philosophy guides everything we do and gives our residents the perspective they need to provide coordinated, comprehensive care to patients of all ages.
Our residents bring rich and diverse talents to the program. Most choose to continue their careers as Family Medicine specialists while others often advance their education and skills by pursuing associated fellowships in geriatrics, or sports medicine. Regardless of their career choices, they share one thing in common – a dynamic three-year journey that combines academic excellence, state-of-the-art technology and one-on-one instruction that prepares them for the challenges and opportunities of modern medicine.
I invite you to take a few minutes to learn more about our program, its faculty and the nationally-recognized resources of Conemaugh Health System and its flagship hospital, Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center. I think you will like what you see. In the meantime, thank you for your interest in our program. Best wishes for a successful search.
