The National Family Medicine Residency (NFMR) Program, a collaborative effort between A.T. Still University’s School of Osteopathic Medicine in Arizona (ATSU-SOMA) and the Wright Center for Graduate Medical Education in Scranton, Pennsylvania, has received initial osteopathic recognition from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME).
NFMR offers training opportunities at healthcare partner sites across the country including El Rio Health in Tucson, Arizona, HealthSource of Ohio in New Richmond, Ohio, HealthPoint in Auburn, Washington, and Unity Health Care in Washington, DC.
“I am thankful for the strong partnerships with our community health centers that make NFMR possible,” said Lawrence LeBeau, DO, chair, graduate medical education at ATSU-SOMA. “Together, we will continue to grow, improve, and advance our innovative national consortium osteopathic family medicine program.”
In Oct. 2018, NFMR received ACGME initial accreditation by the Family Medicine Review Committee and has now made the full transition into the Single Accreditation System.
