Accelerated Family Medicine: Graduating Competent Physicians

NYT Logo

"At our medical school, we are in our second year of an accredited accelerated medical education continuum by presenting a '3+3' primary care curriculum that smoothly dovetails an intensive three-year long medical school program followed by a three-year family medicine residency in hospitals committed to such innovative endeavors," writes College of Osteopathic Medicine Dean Wolfgang Gilliar, D.O., in the comments section (comment #13) of a New York Times article on accelerated medical school programs.

"The student will be able to enter a family medicine residency with an ADDITIONAL skill set acquired in those three medical school years. The first cohort of students, soon to be medical residents, report a course of professional study that has great personal appeal due to the clear approach, well laid-out objectives and competencies to be achieved, and a sense of pride in being at the forefront of innovation in medical education."
