Orange Regional Medical Center recently celebrated its Department of Graduate Medical Education’s second annual commencement of four Family Medicine residents as well as a graduation ceremony for eight residents in its Traditional Rotation Internship.
“Orange Regional is very proud of our second graduates. Family physicians are trained to see patients from birth into middle age and through their later years,” said Administrative Director of Medical Education, Jenny Vosganian-Clancy. “We are delighted that Dr. Osmaan Minhas has decided to stay in our area by joining our Medical Group.”
As a teaching hospital, the mission of the Graduate and Undergraduate Medical Education Program at Orange Regional Medical Center is to prepare residents and students to be excellent physicians and well-developed individuals by educating them in the fundamental concepts, knowledge, and practical applications of skills taught by a team of dedicated medical professionals. An Orange Regional residency offers a state-of-the-art facility, enthusiastic faculty and an academic neighbor, Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCom), with a campus a few miles from the hospital.
Orange Regional offers six residency programs including:
- Family Medicine
- Emergency Medicine
- Traditional Rotating Internship
- Internal Medicine
- General Surgery
Our teaching staff offer Journal Clubs. With our Simulation Labs, residents can better gain skills on procedures before performing them on a patient.
Orange Regional Medical Center’s residency programs are approved by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA), and Family Medicine and Psychiatry are dually accredited by the AOA and the American College of Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). Orange Regional has established a solid foundation for medical education with its close affiliation with New York Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Education consortium (NYCOMEC) and its educational partner Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine (TouroCOM).
Orange Regional also hosted its Annual Ronald H. Israelski, MD Excellence in Education Awards Ceremony. The awards recognize a distinguished group of physicians, resident physicians and medical students who have demonstrated educational innovation and excellence.
Dr. Ronald Israelski and Orange Regional Medical Center President and CEO, Scott Batulis, had a vision and the leadership necessary to bring Medical Education to Orange County. As Regional Designated Institutional Officer, Dr. Israelski was extremely instrumental in developing a partnership with Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine which led to the purchase of the old Horton Hospital which was refurbished to create its Middletown Campus. With medical students learning at Orange Regional, it was a natural progression to create residency programs. In July of 2014, Orange Regional began its first residency program in Family Medicine, which continues to be led by Dr. John Dermigny, DO.
