Medical Education Programs
Community offers a variety of medical education programs for graduate and undergraduate medical students as well as clinical professionals and students who want to update their skills or explore career development opportunities.
Graduate Medical Education (GME)
Family medicine, the network’s flagship residency, has maintained continuous ACGME accreditation, and a track record of excellence for over 40 years. We are also affiliated with Marian College of Osteopathic Medicine, the AOA (American Osteopathic Association) for Family Medicine, and the APM (American Podiatric Association) for Podiatry.
Undergraduate Medical Education (UGME)
Community offers a variety of rotational opportunities and programs for first through fourth year medical students, including the Hospital Medical Education program, Primary Care Scholars program and elective rotations.
Our inpatient pharmacy residency programs provide training for four residents in the PGY1 year with additional residency training options in pharmacotherapy, behavioral care and ambulatory care.
Community Health Network offers numerous educational opportunities for current nurses—including internships, institutes and certification review courses—and nursing student opportunities such as observation/shadowing, the student extern program and clinical experiences through affiliating schools of nursing.
Medical Assistant Fellowship Program
The Medical Assistant Fellowship Program is an advanced externship program for selected applicants. It will provide 250 hours of extensive training during a period of eight to 10 weeks. This specialized program is designed to strengthen clinical and educational preparation as well as open the door to employment opportunities. Upon successful completion of the fellowship program, all students will be considered for open positions at Community Health Network, taking into consideration preferences for location, specialty and hours.
As of March 14, Community Health Network is currently closed to all students and observations due to the COVID-19 outbreak and response. We currently do not have an estimate of when those restrictions will be lifted and will update this page as more information is available. Thank you for your patience as we work together to stop the spread of COVID-19.
