    Program Description

    What sets us apart from other programs is our positive, collegial environment. Residents are valued and respected as an integral part of the Summa healthcare team. Hospital committees welcome resident members. In the office, residents collaborate with faculty and staff on curriculum, quality and office operations. We are an osteopathic-recognized program with 8 residents per class and 14 core faculty. We provide 30-minute educational sessions daily, and four-hour educational sessions 3 times per month. Recent revisions to the educational program include wellness, leadership, practice management, home visits, community medicine and EMR mastery. Residents may tailor their training to meet unique interests in areas such as sports medicine, palliative care, geriatrics and women’s health. The Summa Health System – Akron Campus Family Medicine Residency Program was chartered soon after the American Board of Family Medicine was established in 1969. The program was officially accredited by the ACGME in 1970. In 2006, the program was accredited by the American Osteopathic Association, making the program a dually-accredited program. With the recent move to a single accreditation system, we applied for and received Osteopathic Recognition status from the ACGME in 2017. We offer a comprehensive, three-year program of medical, behavioral and practice management education. Learn and practice in a fully integrated model of care as part of a PCMH clinic. The curriculum is structured in accordance with the requirements of the ACGME and Osteopathic Recognition. The program also has a tradition of flexibility in adapting clinical rotations to the educational needs of the individual resident. Our graduates have gone on to practice in many areas of family medicine - hospice and palliative medicine, sports medicine, addiction medicine, geriatrics, hospitalist care, urgent care, locum tenens, rural medicine, and international medicine. These are some of the things that we feel make our program stand out: Strong Institutional Support for Residency Education Collegial Atmosphere Multi-Residency Hospital Clinic First approach to scheduling and team-based care Summa Fellowships: Geriatrics, Hospice & Palliative Medicine, Sports Medicine Pediatrics Rotation at Akron Children's Hospital Narrative Medicine Curriculum Family Medicine Inpatient Service Lean Six Sigma yellow and green belt certification Flexible Curriculum for Emphasis Training Excellence in Scholarship System-wide electronic health record (EHR) - Epic Opportunities to teach medical students Community Medicine Global Health Behavioral Science Procedure Curriculum Curricular Innovations in the following areas: Leadership & Safety Wellness Ethics Practice Management Efficient EMR documentation Addiction care (Medication Assisted Therapy - MAT) Communication
