“As Director of Medical Education for Harnett Health, I thank you for expressing interest in our medical education programs.  This is a very exciting time as we embark on the development and implementation of our postgraduate medical education programs, in collaboration with Campbell University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine.  We look forward to welcoming our very first resident class in July 2016.  I encourage each of you, whether a medical student, intern, resident, or attending physician, to explore our website for current and future developments.”

 

 Our Programs

 

Harnett Health’s residency programs are designed to  provide each trainee a solid foundation for lifelong learning while satisfying the knowledge and competency requirements of the accrediting bodies.

Our vision for the graduates of each of our programs is to:

  • Train residents who deliver passionate, high-quality patient care
  • Encourage residents to achieve academic and clinical excellence
  • Create an outstanding learning environment for young physicians
  • Provide value to the community where the resident chooses to practice
  • Provide guidance to residents to enable to them to provide the best possible care to all patients while being good stewards of available healthcare resources

 

Currently, we offer American Osteopathic Association (AOA) accredited residency programs in Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, and Traditional Rotating Internship.

Family Medicine Residency #369850

Our family medicine residency program encompasses a wide range of progressive family-centered patient care experiences.  Our residents will provide care to newborns, infants, children, adults, and the elderly in a variety of settings.  In our Family Medicine Residency Clinic, as well as in our family practitioners’ offices, residents will be exposed to a variety of patient-care situations that a busy family practitioner experiences on a daily basis – from the newborn with failure to thrive, to the well-child checkup, to the senior in the early stages of Alzheimer’s Dementia – our residents will provide care in a variety of diverse settings.
