Providence Advances Medical Education
Providence is the primary site of inpatient teaching in the Internal Medicine Residency Program. In addition to Providence's Internal Medicine Residency, the Hospital has a residency in Family Practice and a Geriatrics Fellowship Program, both affiliated with Georgetown University. The Family Practice Residency Program provides an office practice at the Fort Lincoln Family Medicine Center in Colmar Manor, Maryland, a model teaching facility jointly operated by Providence and Georgetown.
Residents from Howard University in General Surgery, Orthopaedics and OB/GYN rotate through the Hospital. Psychiatry residents from St. Elizabeth's Hospital complete rotations for experience in Internal Medicine. Providence also has a minor affiliation with George Washington University Hospital.
Surgical House Officers and Medical Associates (fully trained and licensed physicians) provide care to patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week in conjunction with the private attending physician.
Providence participates in the ERAS Process - the Electronic Residency Application Service from the Association of American Medical Colleges. Please visit your Dean's office for more information or visit the AAMC web site at http://www.aamc.org. Graduates of foreign medical schools must apply for an ERAS application kit through the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG). The ECFMG website is located at http://www.ecfmg.org
