The residency program in Family Medicine/Osteopathic Neuromuscular Medicine at Medical City Fort Worth, formerly called Plaza Medical Center in Fort Worth has been established to train physicians to be capable of managing a majority of the clinical problems seen in a typical family practice clinic as well as an osteopathic manipulative medicine clinic. The program is dually accredited by Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The scope of the training includes all elements stated in the Basic Standards for Training in family medicine and osteopathic neuromuscular medicine. In this program, residents will learn to evaluate, manage a wide variety of medical problems regardless of diagnosis, gender, age of the patient or severity of illness, while adhering to the standards of care in a model family medicine and osteopathic neuromuscular medicine setting. Residents will have the opportunity to learn common inpatient procedure such as central line placement, ventilator management, intubations and common outpatient procedures such as exercise stress test, EKG, spirometry, ankle branchial index, musculoskeletal ultrasound, joint injection, soft tissue injection, IUD insertion, colposcopy, endometrial biopsy, Nexplanon insertion, skin biopsy, minor office surgery, audiogram, tympanogram, osteopathic manipulative treatment, nerve blocks, and prolotherapy.
The program length is 48 months consisting of 52-4 week clinical and educational blocks with focus on both inpatient and outpatient setting. The training occurs in hospitals, model ambulatory clinic, community health centers, and private offices of the attending physician. Ambulatory clinical training will take place at a model family practice clinic located in Fort Worth, Texas and an easy 15-minute commute to the hospital for residents and patients. The ambulatory clinic experience will provide the resident with a continuing care exposure to a panel of private and government assisted patients. A core of full time board‐certified family physician faculty and osteopathic manipulative medicine physician faculty supervises all the resident’s clinical encounters. First- year residents (interns) will spend one half‐day of family medicine continuity clinic per week in the ambulatory clinic. PGY2-4 residents will spend on average 3 half days per week in the ambulatory clinic (2 family medicine continuity half days and 1 OMM continuity half day). The interns and resident’s skills and knowledge will be evaluated using ACGME approved competency-based evaluation system. Resident inputs will be used to improve the program.
