As the largest HRSA-funded Teaching Health Center Graduate Medical Education Safety-Net Consortium in the country, we offer accredited, comprehensive and community-focused residency programs throughout Northeast Pennsylvania and across the United States.
In Northeast Pennsylvania, close to 200 physician learners gain hands-on experience serving a diverse population, including those challenged by the negative effects of disparate socioeconomic determinants of health in our physician-lead, ACGME-accredited Internal Medicine, Family Medicine and Psychiatry residencies, as well as our Cardiovascular Disease, Gastroenterology and Geriatrics fellowships. At all nine of our affiliated Federally Qualified Health Center Look-Alike (FQLA) sites and school-based health clinics knows as The Wright Center for Community Health in the Greater Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area, we are privileged to provide non-discriminatory, high-quality care to more than 25,000 patients and 75,000 annual visits with ongoing clinical expansions in both urban and rural settings.
In four unique regions across the country, Wright Center residents serve communities in the nation’s only multi-state consortium Family Medicine residency. National Family Medicine Residency (NFMR) residents live and work in Washington, DC, New Richmond, Ohio, Tucson, Arizona, or Auburn, Washington, engaging in Federally Qualified Health Center care delivery and inpatient and specialty rotations and electives using one curriculum while sharing the benefits of geographically diverse, cross-system learning to expand their skill sets and care delivery frameworks.
Training in all Wright Center for GME clinical learning environments, in Pennsylvania and across the country, includes fully integrated and interprofessional service-based education that focuses on socioeconomic determinants of health, community oriented care and Lifestyle Medicine practices.
Our passionate purpose is to create transformational healthcare teams of leaders who empower patients, families and communities to own and optimize their health. If you want to learn to practice medicine that’s vital to your career and your community, we invite you to make THE WRIGHT choice.
