Deborah R. Longo-
Deborah R. Longo-Malloy, D.O., was named program director of Crozer-Keystone’s Traditional Rotating Internship based at Crozer-Chester Medical Center
Malloy, who is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, completed her residency with the Crozer-Keystone Family Practice Residency Program. Her specialties include women’s health and pediatric care. She is a board-certified family medicine physician by the American Osteopathic Association (AOA) and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
“I am a 1996 graduate of Crozer-Keystone’s residency program, and it is gratifying to be able to work with my fellow faculty to grow and strengthen our program,” says Longo-Malloy. “Having a dual accredited internship allows us to be able to cast a wider net when we are recruiting residents for our Family Medicine residency and to strive for the strongest candidates to fill our class.”
“Dr. Longo-Malloy will be working closely with me in her new position as program director,” says William J. Warning II, M.D., director of the Crozer-Keystone Family Practice Residency Program. “We are honored to have Dr. Longo-Malloy in this position because of her passion for osteopathic principles of medical care, her experience in osteopathic manipulation therapy (hands-on manipulation used to treat a variety of illness/injuries in patients), and her experience in the Crozer-Keystone internship program.”
As program director, Longo-Malloy will oversee the residents in their first year to assure compliance with AOA requirements. She will also fill the role of faculty advisor for first year residents, attend quarterly meetings at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM) to discuss policy and graduate medical issues, attend national meetings of the Association of Osteopathic Directors and Medical Education (AODME) and oversee the Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) curriculum for the residency program.
“I’m excited to continue to be the advocate for our D.O. interns and the liaison for PCOM and the Osteopathic Postdoctoral Training Institution (OPTI),” Longo-Malloy adds.
“Dr. Longo-Malloy has been a faculty member of the Crozer-Keystone Family Medicine Residency program for almost 20 years,” says Christine F. Giesa, D.O., FACOEP-d, director of Osteopathic Medical Education for Crozer-Keystone Health System and director of the Osteopathic Rotating Internship Program at DelawareCountyMemorialHospital. “With her knowledge and experience, she will be a true asset to the program in her new position.”
