Graduate Medical Education

FMC, Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine and the Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education have partnered to offer primary care residency programs at Fairfield Medical Center. Accredited by the American Osteopathic Association, our Family Medicine Residency Program began in 2010. With the launch of our Internal Medicine Residency Program in 2012, FMC’s Emery and Evelyn Williams Graduate Medical Education Resource Center was opened as a dedicated area for residents to train. The center includes lecture and study facilities, sophisticated audio, visual and video conference technology, osteopathic manipulative therapy and other hands-on learning directed by FMC physician instructors.
