The Osteopathic Track
A Message from Jincy Cherian, DO, Director of Osteopathic Education
At the NYCOMEC/Mid-Hudson Family Medicine Residency Program, we are proud to offer the best academic medicine in a community setting to our osteopathic residents and medical students. Residents learn to treat the entire family, from newborn through the end of life. Our program has achieved the ACGME’s Osteopathic Recognition and our training emphasizes continuity of care with the goal of creating the finest osteopathic physicians.
Our faculty, both osteopathic and allopathic, are committed to excellence and teaching in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Residents and students are exposed to a variety of disease states, enabling them to treat a broad range of patients upon graduation. Osteopathic principles are integrated through weekly clinic, hospital rounds and didactic conferences. The weekly outpatient clinic dedicated to Osteopathic Manipulation is staffed by our osteopathic precepting faculty. In addition, osteopathic residents are able to treat their continuity patients and hospitalized patients with osteopathic methods under the supervision of our staff.
Our inpatient services are housed at WMC Health Alliance of the Hudson Valley, Broadway Campus in Kingston, New York. Our busy family health centers in Kingston, New Paltz and Ellenville provide the anchor for outpatient training. Our electronic medical record is state of the art. Didactic lectures are scheduled on Wednesday afternoons, and family medicine principles dominate the teaching. Through this approach, strong academic standards are coupled with direct patient care. In addition to our Family Medicine staff, the community specialists and subspecialists are available and highly involved in teaching.
We are affiliated with the NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine and Icahn Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. As an established program with osteopathic and family medicine principles at our core, we have an excellent reputation for producing skilled physicians for our community.
