Dear Prospective Student:
Thank you for your interest in Samaritan Medical Center's Postgraduate Osteopathic Medical Education training programs.
Our program offerings are designed to provide a transition to the clinical environment where your extensive medical knowledge base can be put into proper perspective in the provision of direct patient care. The faculty members have been chosen for their experience in clinical work, and their ability to translate their specialty areas of medical science into meaningful and effective treatment.
If you join us, you will work directly with attending faculty and residents in a one on one mentoring model of progressive education. Bedside instruction forms the core of the medical student experience augmented by daily educational lecture sessions and conferences. You will be expected to complete reading assignments and will participate in topical presentations to your peers and faculty.
The extensive resources of the Samaritan Medical Center and its staff are all available to you and will allow you to explore your interests and identify your strengths in the various medical arts. At this time in your medical career when you are reaching your greatest potential we welcome the opportunity to assist you in realizing your aspirations, and hope that we might help to shape your success in clinical medicine.
