Providing Quality Patient Care and Service to our Community in an Innovative Educational Environment.
Mount Carmel has provided a strong academically-based Family Medicine Residency Program since 1975. This program has produced a diverse group of Family Physicians, who are leaders in the medical field throughout Ohio and the United States. Our graduates practice in many diverse settings, including traditional family medicine office practices, multi-specialty group practices, urgent care centers, hospitalist groups and academic-based practices in rural, urban and suburban communities.
The Mount Carmel Family Medicine Residency is a three-year program and is fully accredited by the ACGME. We educate and train Family Physicians to provide a broad range of primary care services to patients ranging in age from infancy through geriatric. Residents receive their education and training at Mount Carmel St. Ann's, Mount Carmel West, and at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Mount Carmel St. Ann's is a community-based hospital which provides our residents with an unopposed learning environment. We are the only residency program providing primary care and inpatient services in the facility. At Mount Carmel West, first-year residents work with other Mount Carmel residents during their MICU rotation.
Mount Carmel St. Ann's is an unopposed training environment for our inpatient medicine service. Yet, as a Family Medicine resident at Mount Carmel, you will also benefit from interactions with other residents who are training in a variety of specialties mostly located at Mount Carmel West, including General Surgery, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics/Gynecology, Orthopedics and Transitional Year. An attending staff of 950 includes a teaching staff of nearly 250 physicians, including many outstanding specialists.
The Mount Carmel Family Medicine Residency program would like to recognize Dr. Chad Braun for being named part of the “Best Doctors of 2013”.
Mount Carmel St. Ann's Family Medicine Center is a state-of-the-art outpatient office and is located directly adjacent to the hospital. Our center, completed in 2008, provides a blend of an urban and suburban practice environment. This diverse and challenging outpatient experience gives our residents the opportunity to enhance their clinical and procedure skills. We are fortunate that many pediatric patients and their families seek care at our office. Our diverse patient population allows our residents to develop a strong foundation treating people with the conditions commonly encountered in a community Family Medicine office, which prepares our residents to be successful in the field of Family Medicine.
At Mount Carmel, we believe in our core values of respect, social justice, compassion, care of the poor and underserved and excellence. During your residency experience, you will be given opportunities to help under-served patients in the Columbus area while further developing your patient care and interaction skills. Mount Carmel has an active Outreach Program which sends a mobile van into underserved areas of Columbus. This program is headed by a Family Medicine faculty member and our residents play an active role in the provision of care to members of our community.
Through our program, you will have the opportunity to learn from and work with knowledgeable, friendly and approachable faculty. We have an excellent advisor/advisee system to help our residents progress successfully through their training. Our faculty have dedicated time to meet individually with their 3-4 advissees on a regular basis. Our faculty embraces a coaching model of resident education that includes individualized professional development instruction. We have developed enhanced techniques to provide feedback based on direct observation via simulation, video precepting and regular electronic formative feedback. We promote resident involvement in research with a collaborative approach under the guidance of their advisors or other faculty mentors. Whether discussing a clinical case or obtaining advice on career planning you will find that our faculty supports your education and development in innumerable ways.
