Landing Internal Medicine

Our Internal Medicine Osteopathic program in northeast Pennsylvania, led by Dr. Timothy Burke, is now accredited by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) under its Single Accreditation System. On the merger of overall accreditation, the ACGME states, “Through Osteopathic-focused residency programs, the new system will recognize the unique principles and practices of the Osteopathic medical profession and its contributions to healthcare.”

Although our Osteopathic and Allopathic Internal Medicine residents train side by side in diverse, innovative learning environments, including community-based hospitals, FQHCs, regional public health-based settings, behavioral health clinics and specialty practices, our Osteopathic and Allopathic Internal Medicine programs are two unique training opportunities and each is separately accredited by the ACGME. As highlighted by the ACGME, our Osteopathic Internal Medicine Program, under Dr. Burke’s able leadership, includes consistent methods for evaluation and accountability; enhanced opportunities for all trainees; and transparency to outside entities, including the federal government, licensing boards, credentialing committees and the public.

Many faculty members in this robust program completed their own residency training with The Wright Center and our newly-accredited Internal Medicine program will always have its Osteopathic foundation.
