Welcome to the University of Cincinnati (UC) Family Medicine Residency Program at West Chester Hospital.

We are a new 6-6-6 program and will accept our first class of residents in July 2023. Although our program is new, the UC Department of Family and Community Medicine has a rich history of fellow, resident, and medical student training. We will be the first graduate medical education (residency) program at West Chester Hospital.

The University of Cincinnati opened West Chester Hospital in 2012 to serve as a community hospital in the northern suburbs of Cincinnati as well as the nearby small cities of Hamilton and Middletown and the surrounding more rural areas. We are about equidistants between Cincinnati and Dayton.

West Chester Hospital is a 150 bed, full-service hospital including OB, ICU, ER, and newborn care. We are thrilled to partner with Cincinnati Children’s Hopsital Medical Center (CCHMC), one of the top pediatric hospitals in the nation! Our residents will complete their inpatient peds, pediatric emergency medicine, and peds specialty rotations at the CCHMC’s Liberty Campus, less than 3 miles from the West Chester Hospital.

West Chester Hospital and CCHMC Liberty are staffed by UC and CCHMC faculty. This gives us all the benefits of a community program with the resources and expertise of a university department. Our Family Medicine Practice (FMP), West Chester Hospital, CCHMC Liberty Campus, and our specialty outpatient clinics are integrated into this community. Most residency rotations are walking distance or a short drive from the FMP.

We recently opened our new FMP for the faculty/resident practice. It is a newly renovated space designed specifically for resident education and we are quite proud of it!

Our curriculum emphasizes community medicine, inclusion, and diversity, and to that end we have partners including Primary Health Solutions (an FQHC and school based health center in Hamilton, OH), Planned Parenthood of Southwest Ohio, Butler County Department of Health, Heritage Springs (a skilled nursing and extended care facility), and the Barrington Assisted Living Center.

Being a part of the UC Department of Family Medicine also allows the residents to take advantage of our large and diverse faculty and services, including our Research Division; Integrative Health Division; Student Health Services; Geriatric Division; and Urban, Underserved, and Global Health Division. We are excited to collaborate with our department’s sibling program, the long-standing Christ Hospital-UC Family Medicine Program. Our FMP also hosts and teaches UC College of Medicine medical students throughout their four years of training.

We look forward to meeting you and discussing our program in further detail.

Further reinforcement of the osteopathic approach is provided through our regular journal club, weekly didactics, hands-on workshops, and osteopathic focused scholarly activities. All faculty within our Department of Family Medicine embrace the holistic principles of osteopathic medicine making The University of Toledo Family Medicine Residency and The University of Toledo Medical Center an excellent destination to continue your training in osteopathic medicine.

Lifestyle Medicine – Lifestyle Medicine is a medical specialty that uses therapeutic lifestyle interventions as a primary modality to treat chronic conditions including, but not limited to, cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. Lifestyle medicine-certified clinicians are trained to apply evidence-based, whole person, prescriptive lifestyle change to treat and, when used intensively, often reverse such conditions. Applying the six pillars of lifestyle medicine – a whole-food, plant-predominant eating pattern, physical activity, restorative sleep, stress management, avoidance of risky substances, and positive social connections – also provides effective prevention for these conditions.

We have a diverse faculty composed of faculty members from The University of Toledo Department of Family Medicine who are committed to providing residents with an outstanding education in family medicine, and strive to create a supportive, family-friendly learning environment.

In addition to our Family Medicine Practice, our location also houses radiology, a lab, and a pharmacy, which allows patients to receive quality and convenient care under one roof.

Residents also have scheduled time throughout the year in our state-of-the-art Interprofessional Immersive Simulation Center which houses a virtual immersive reality center, an advanced clinical simulation center, and a progressive anatomy and surgical skills center.

Residents and their families have access to many activities found in major metropolitan areas without the hassles of big city life, including the Toledo Museum of Art, Mud Hens baseball, Toledo Walleye hockey, the Toledo Zoo, Cedar Point amusement park, golf courses, and several metro parks.

We welcome the opportunity to tell you more about our program and the opportunities we can provide for you.

The Western Reserve Health Education Family Medicine Residency Program at Trumbull Regional Medical Center is a 6-6-6 program located in Youngstown/Warren, OH, which sits in the northeast corner of the state approximately 10 minutes from the Ohio/Pennsylvania line. We are about one hour east of Cleveland, OH, and one hour west of Pittsburgh, PA. We specialize in training very well-rounded family physicians equipped to practice primary care medicine in any setting including one that requires a significant procedural skill set. Our program has a long and rich history having been in existence for more than four decades and our current program director has been in place since 2011. In addition, our faculty is comprised entirely of former graduates of the program. Our residents enjoy a wide demographic of patients including multiple ethnic backgrounds as well as care that spans from the womb to end-of-life. The training includes thorough experiences in both the inpatient and outpatient settings and our curriculum is designed to provide for the development of superior medical knowledge as evidenced by our 100% board passage rate dating back to 2016. We allow our residents a great deal of autonomy to pursue their specific desires within the realm of primary care, especially those interested in a fellowship. We are very proud of the fact that every resident we’ve graduated since 2011 who has desired fellowship training has acquired a spot in either their first or second choice. We have two outpatient facilities where our residents see patients. One free-standing facility on the north side of Youngstown and the other located on the first floor of the hospital serving the city of Warren.

Our residents enjoy the luxury of training in an extremely nurturing environment from individuals who completed the same program and chose to stay and practice in the area as well as assist future graduates in pursuing their career endeavors. The Youngstown/Warren area offers multiple benefits including a low cost of living as well as the largest metropolitan park in the United States, Mill Creek Park, which encompasses approximately 4,400 acres and has three major lakes, 36 holes of golf, a spectacular rose garden, numerous pavilions, look out benches, hiking trails, boating facilities, a magnificent steel bridge, etc. The proximity to Cleveland and Pittsburgh also provides residents the advantages of two big cities within one hour of our location including amazing restaurants, museums, theater districts showing Broadway plays, professional sporting events, major airports, etc.

The Wright State University (WSU) Rural Family Medicine Residency Program will be a 1+2 Rural Training Pathway (RTP). Resident rotations in the first year will be in Dayton, OH, with WSU’s established Family Medicine Residency Program, and rotations in the second and third years will be in Greenville, OH, in rural Darke County, located an hour from Dayton. This model gives residents robust clinical experiences in an urban area that are difficult to replicate in a rural area, such as inpatient pediatrics, while still providing the majority of the training in a rural community, hospital, and clinic. The WSU Rural Family Medicine Program is ACGME accredited.

Our mission is clear. We will train family physicians in a small-town, supportive setting that emphasizes one-on-one mentorship and forges lasting relationships with patients, faculty, and the community.
