Family Medicine Residency Program

Town of Wallkill, New York - Orange Regional Medical Center Resident Commencement and Excellence in Education Awards Dinner on June 22, 2017.

Family Medicine Residency Program

Orange Regional Medical Center is proud to offer an AOA/ACGME approved three-year Family Medicine residency program. As the program evolves, Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine will continue to be at the heart of the program. Residents will be exposed to all aspects of Family Medicine from treating newborns and pediatric patients to having preventative medicine dialogues with adult and geriatric patients.

All of our graduates have been placed in Family Medicine positions where they have been given the opportunity to work in the exact field that they have desired and have been trained to work in. Fifty percent of our graduates made the choice to remain in the local community and dedicate the beginnings of their career to serving those in Orange and Sullivan County. We trust that our future residents will continue to be committed to improving the healthcare of the surrounding community just as we are committed to training exceptional family physicians.

Special Programs

Incorporating Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine into the hospital and as part of patient’s regular treatment has been a strong push of the residency program. Inpatient rounding with Family Medicine Physicians aims to treat patients on hospital floors where OMM can prove beneficial to their healing process.

The integration of OMM into Orange Regional’s treatment plans has resulted in a resident-run outpatient OMM clinic, located in ORMC’s Outpatient Building. This resident-run clinic is ever increasing with referrals, so much so that it has established continuity with patients and has had to incorporate residents from other specialties. Mental Health and Psychiatry screenings have become a vital part of the treatment plans that the OMM clinic has to offer.

Resident Physicians have grown to become indispensable members of the surrounding community. Family Medicine Residents are required to be active and involved in two community outreach events a year. These include:

  • Health fairs
  • Blood pressure screenings
  • Any events put on by the hospital or their continuity clinics

As a program, we want the community to know that we are striving to care for their health and wellness in every way possible.

Electives

Family Medicine residents can choose from a variety of electives.  Residents can choose from the list below, repeat a regularly scheduled rotation or request a new elective to meet their individual needs or preferences.

  • Allergy
  • Anesthesia
  • Endocrinology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Hematology/Oncology
  • International Medical Trip
  • Rheumatology
  • Urgent Care

Interview days are scheduled on Fridays from October through January.

The Family Medicine Program Coordinator will contact all applicants via ERAS who have been accepted for Interviews.  Interviews will then be scheduled through a separate software link which the Coordinator will send.  This will allow applicants to schedule their interview on a day that works best for them.  If the need to move your interview to another day arises, you can do so on your own through this same software link.

The interview day will begin with touring the facility and meeting the Coordinator.  Then, each interviewee will have a one-on-one interview with the Program Director.  At the end of each day, there will be some residents at a local restaurant to meet for dinner and enjoy discussion in an informal setting.
