Conemaugh Health System held a signing ceremony for five graduates of the Emergency Medicine Residency at Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center who have decided to continue their careers with the health system.
“This is great news for Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center and for our community,” says Dr. Matthew Perry, Emergency Medicine Residency Program Director. “Conemaugh Memorial’s Emergency Department treats over 60,000 patients per year, so these physicians have the knowledge and skills to rapidly evaluate and treat all types of patients entering our doors. We are fortunate that they have decided to continue their careers with our organization.”
Conemaugh's Emergency Medicine Residency is a three-year program associated with the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. The residency is designed to prepare graduates for American Board of Emergency (ABEM) certification.
“It’s a real treasure to be able to retain this talent in the community,” adds Dr. Daniel Wehner, Chairman of the Emergency Medicine Department at Conemaugh Memorial. “This is one of the great advantages to having successful residency programs. In the case of emergency medicine, these physicians not only help Conemaugh Memorial, many also provide emergency care at Conemaugh Miners, Conemaugh Meyersdale, and Conemaugh Nason Medical Centers.”
