Medical Education at Garnet Health Medical Center
The mission of Medical Education at Garnet Health Medical Center is to prepare residents and students to be excellent physicians by educating them in the fundamental concepts, knowledge and practical applications of skills taught by a team of dedicated medical professionals.
Garnet Health Medical Center strives to maintain an academic environment committed to the highest of standards in education and medical care. This approach fosters excellence in the education of physicians during residency, students during their clerkships, and attending physicians with CME credits during their career.
Our local community has been invigorated by a sense of medical academia which is transforming our towns and is having a profound impact on the quality of healthcare in the Hudson Valley.
Garnet Health Medical Center encompasses many phases of medical education including:
- Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME)
- Graduate Medical Education (GME)
- Frequent regional Continuing Medical Education (CME) conferences
Graduate Medical Education
Garnet Health Medical Center is continually transforming from what was a small community hospital, to a formidable teaching hospital. These residency programs were born out of the desire to improve regional health indicators, help local economies and provide educational opportunities that were not originally available in the Hudson Valley. We are proud to have produced six residency programs that have obtained both AOA Accreditation and ACGME Accreditation.
- Emergency Medicine
- Family Medicine
- General Surgery
- Internal Medicine
- Transitional Year Internship
Our core and non-core faculty have been trained at world-class teaching centers and are dedicated to cultivating an academic environment for each rotation. We have extensive didactic programs, including daily lectures, Grand Rounds, Journal Club, and SIM curriculums. Over 160 preceptors selflessly give their time, energy and passion to training resident physicians throughout their time at Garnet Health Medical Center.
Undergraduate Medical Education
Garnet Health Medical Center partners with Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine in Middletown 5 miles away from the hospital. Along with TouroCOM, Our vision is to produce the most empathetic physicians and increase the quality of healthcare in the region. TouroCOM third year students complete their core and elective rotations within the residency programs.
In terms of auditions, each residency program has an allotment of spots available to medical students both inside and outside of the TouroCOM community.
