Crozer-Keystone's Osteopathic Rotating Internship Program is built on the solid foundation underlying the practice of osteopathic medicine: the recognition of the somatic component of disease and the interrelationship of structure and function, and the practice of holistic treatment of each patient to encourage the body's natural healing power and enhance wellness.
Our osteopathic internship, which fulfills the requirements of the American Osteopathic Association, offers a broad-based educational and clinical experience to 10 interns each year. Our program is currently in the process of applying for ACGME pre-accreditation. Our interns primarily train at Delaware County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) and Crozer-Chester Medical Center, although they may take rotations at other Crozer-Keystone facilities.
The training year is divided into 13 four-week rotations. Six required rotations include family medicine, general internal medicine, surgery, pediatrics and emergency medicine. The remaining time consists of service obligations, elective rotations, two weeks of vacation and five personal/sick days.
Individually Tailored Training
Beyond the required rotations, Crozer-Keystone's Osteopathic Rotating Internship Program is tailored to meet the needs of individual interns and affords them the opportunity to take highly specialized training. Our interns have the ability to take up to three elective rotations ALL of which may be done off-campus.
Among our unique and exciting offerings are rotations in wound management, interventional radiology and the OMM Clinic while on family medicine.
