About the Program

We invite graduates of osteopathic medical schools to apply for our Osteopathic Traditional Rotating Internship Program, designed as postgraduate year 1 (PRG-1) of our 3-year categorical Internal Medicine Residency Program. After completing our yearlong Osteopathic Internship Program, osteopathic residents will complete the final two years (PRG-2 and PRG-3) of our Internal Medicine Residency Program.

Our program is accredited by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and designed to provide graduates of accredited osteopathic medical colleges with a broad range of inpatient and outpatient clinical experiences in the management of patients with a wide spectrum of health problems.  This clinical experience is complemented by a range of formal and informal didactic experiences.  Following successful completion of the internship, osteopathic physicians who meet the other requirements will be eligible for full licensure in Pennsylvania and may enter into the practice of medicine.  Graduates of the internship will also be qualified to undertake further training in programs accredited by either the American Osteopathic Association or the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

We have a distinguished history of providing quality care to patients and families in their communities. Should you choose to participate in this program, you will enjoy unparalleled opportunities to interact with outstanding faculty in a broad range of specialties, caring for a diverse patient population. Interns who complete the internship may credit the experience towards admission requirements for the American Board of Internal Medicine’s certifying examination. 

As a participant in our program, you will have an exceptional opportunity to bring the knowledge and skills you acquired in medical school to life.

Osteopathic interns enjoy a friendly and close working relationship with fellow residents, full-time faculty, the program director, and the attending physicians who serve as clinical faculty. Their emphasis on high-quality patient care and their concern and interest in each intern’s education make for a nurturing, as well as challenging, environment in which to learn and work.
