Jill Patton D.O., FACP, FACOI
Program Director Osteopathic Internal Medicine Residency
Lutheran General Hosptials Internal Medicine Osteopathic Training Program is accredited by both the AOA and ACGME. Each year we take three residents from the AOA match for a told AOA residency of 9 residents. Our program offers residents with a comprehensive structured educational experience integrating osteopathic principles in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. The educational content of the program incorporates the Core Competencies as defined by the AOA (available on www.acoi.org). The osteopathic residents follow the same program as the allopathic residents with the addition of training in Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine which is integrated with the care of their patients. They also have set electives in their first year of Emergency Medicine, Women's health and Perioperative medicine. These selected residents will take the ACOI annual Resident In-Service Examination which allows them to tailor their education to strengthen areas of weakness. In the three years at Lutheran General Hospital these residents will achieve mastery of the core competencies and will become competent, proficient osteopathic internists. Trainees who complete dual programs have the option to become board certified by either or both the AOA and the American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS). These trainees will also have the opportunity to apply for allopathic as well as osteopathic fellowships.
