The AOA Internship at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center is administered in partnership with Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine (LECOM). Up to twelve interns are accepted into the fully accredited one-year program.
Interns perform traditional rounds with an emphasis on delivering holistic inpatient and outpatient care. The daily clinical rounds include extensive bedside teaching. Interns gain experience in Osteopathic Manipulation Therapy (OMT) via hands-on practice, teaching demonstrations, biweekly OMT rounds and educational conferences.
A majority of AOA interns like what they see at Memorial. In fact, after the one-year internship is complete, up to 75% of interns typically remain to pursue a residency program at the hospital.
