The Family Medicine Residency at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital has been a vital part of the Youngstown, Ohio area since 1977. Our program has graduated well over 100 family physicians since it was founded, with many of these graduates staying in the area, providing high quality medical care to the Mahoning, Trumbull, and Columbiana County region. Graduates have embarked on many exciting practice avenues, including private practice (in small groups, large multi-specialty groups, and hospital positions), academic appointments, and fellowship training.
The emphasis on education is apparent from the start. Interns are given a thorough initiation to health care with a month-long introduction to clinical medicine. As residents progress through training, they are challenged to enhance their understanding of disease processes and to apply that knowledge to improve the health care of a diverse patient population.
Educational opportunities are abundant throughout the residency. Formal didactics are presented weekly, covering the full scope of Family Medicine. Each patient encounter in the hospital or in our Family Health Center is treated as a teachable moment. The faculty possesses a breadth of knowledge, experience, and skills, while sharing a passion for teaching.
We encourage and support our residents’ participation in research, allowing development of their own clinical questions and study design.
Residents enjoy ample time to pursue interests outside medicine. The cost of living of the area is much lower than most of the country. Multiple opportunities exist within town to explore culture and nightlife. Large airports and “big city” life are easily accessed within a one-hour drive to Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
