  • Osteopathic Rotating Internship - Program Closing

    The July 2013 – June 2014 academic year will be the final year for the Osteopathic Rotating Internship at Einstein Medical Center. The program will be closed effective June 30, 2014. Osteopathic applicants interested in the residency programs that currently participate in the Osteopathic Rotating Internship (Internal Medicine, Psychiatry and Pediatrics) should apply to these programs through the allopathic application process (ERAS) and match (NRMP). If an osteopathic applicant has any questions about the closure of the Osteopathic Rotating Internship or the allopathic application process/match for osteopathic applicants, please contact Marlene Whalen at 215-456-7943 or whalenm@einstein.edu.

    The Einstein Medical Center Osteopathic Traditional Rotating Internship is structured to provide a well-balanced program of graduate medical education in core clinical disciplines.  This is accomplished through core rotations and elective experiences.  
     
    The Osteopathic Traditional Rotating Internship is designed to be the first year of an Einstein categorical residency program.  The program is structured to provide the knowledge and skills necessary to become a highly competent physician who will be competitive in any chosen field. The internship is not freestanding; all interns are also enrolled in a categorical program.

    Einstein Medical Center's Osteopathic Rotating Internship offers an outstanding balance between academics and clinical experience in core disciplines.

    Our traditional AOA accredited rotating internship program trains sixteen interns each year and can be, depending on the interest of the intern, tailored to emphasize internal medicine, psychiatry, and pediatrics. The AOA internship can also meet the first year requirements of an ACGME categorical residency in internal medicine, psychiatry, and pediatrics. The residency program is structured to ensure that each intern has the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, clinical skills, interpersonal skills, professional attitudes and behaviors, and experience to be a highly competent physician who will be competitive in any chosen field. 

    The internship focuses on fundamentals of differential diagnosis and clinical problem solving. Interns master the techniques of history-taking and physical examination, gain expertise in the care of patients in a variety of inpatient and outpatient settings and to develop competence in procedural skills. Osteopathic interns also will be expected to master the techniques of structural examination and manipulative treatment. Structural exams will be reviewed by the attending physician and regular conferences will be held to review and discuss structural and palpatory diagnosis and manipulative treatment. Interns also will be required to attend osteopathic manipulative medicine conferences (OMM) regularly held at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (PCOM).   

    Einstein Medical Center's Osteopathic Rotating Internship has a designated Residency Program Director, Marvin Schatz, DO who has day-to-day responsibility for all interns in the program. Our Osteopathic Director of Medical Education,  Douglas McGee, DO is responsible for the oversight of all osteopathic training programs at Einstein Medical Center.
