The Lewistown Rural Family Medicine Residency is a collaboration between Geisinger and Family Practice Center (FPC). This unique venture offers a unique and effective learning experience in the training of future family physicians. In an effort to address the shortage of primary care physicians in rural areas, this program aims to recruit and train physicians with a keen interest in rural family medicine. We are rural focused with a unique patient population; caring for Amish and Mennonite communities at both the hospital and in our clinic. We also provide extenstive hands-on procedural training in our unopposed environment.
