Family Medicine Residency

Matto-120 

Patricia Matto, DO

Interim Program Director

The Family Practice Residency Program is an innovative program that incorporates traditional family medicine, minor surgeries, obstetrical/gynecological care, pediatrics, and osteopathic manipulative medicine into a dynamic education process. Analogous to a tree, our curriculum provides a strong foundation in Internal Medicine during the first 18 months of training, the roots and trunk must be solid.  During the second half of training,  the canopy  becomes  expansive allowing  our residents to develop their individual areas of interest and practice styles. Through the continuity clinic experience, our residents develop their outpatient skills, as well as practice management skills.  Our residents experience  trauma care in the Emergency Department , small group patient education sessions in the clinic, and the unique experience of a  home visit..  The hospital system offers a wide variety of practice experience from  rural  underserved communities,  to more traditional family medicine centers.  The program fulfills  the basic AOA standards.  Our most recent inspection was completed in October 2012.
