Why Community South Osteopathic Family Medicine Residency: It was important for Dr. Van-Laframboise to find a program that not only feels like a family, but also provides the support and the freedom for her to grow into the best osteopathic family physician she can be while maintaining balance in all other aspects of her life. She believes she found that here at this program. The people are genuine, friendly, and down-to-earth and the size of the program is small enough that you get to know everyone on a personal level. The program director is not only passionate about student learning, he is also committed to integrating osteopathic principles in the practice of medicine and developing each resident's strengths in a supportive environment. Furthermore, as a graduate from Marian University College of Medicine, she is excited for the opportunity to help train and mentor the next group of medical students. Finally, the Indianapolis location is ideal for her family. Not only is it close to family and friends in Illinois, it also contains a rich and diverse community that they are excited to learn more about and to serve.
