Landing Regional Family Medicine


The Wright Center offers an ACGME- and AOA-accredited, three-year unopposed Family Medicine residency (Allopathic and Osteopathic) in Northeast Pennsylvania. Formerly known as the Wyoming Valley Family Medicine residency program, the program was founded in 1974.

The Wright Center assumed academic sponsorship of this established entity in July 2013. This sponsorship has resulted in new training venues, innovative patient continuity and growth in faculty and resident numbers in an ever-changing healthcare landscape.


The program is led by William Dempsey, M.D. and Maureen Litchman, M.D., and is designed to prepare residents to serve as primary care physicians.
