As a regional healthcare leader, Bayhealth is an established core clinical campus for training medical students through its undergraduate medical education program.
Now in its third year of hosting cohorts of medical students from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, Bayhealth recently welcomed this year’s group at a meet-and-greet breakfast event.
The 15 new and 10 returning medical students had the opportunity to get to know Bayhealth leadership and medical staff members before beginning their year of clinical training under the guidance of experienced physicians.
During their time at Bayhealth Kent and Sussex campuses, the PCOM students complete 11 core rotations, each lasting one month. These specialty rotations involve following a Bayhealth physician for four weeks. This allows them to gain hands-on learning and broaden their skillset in environments with patients.
“We are thrilled to welcome a new group of talented medical students to our Bayhealth campuses. As they explore a range of specialties and learn from our expert medical staff, they will hone their expertise in providing thorough and compassionate patient care,” said Joseph Rubacky, DO, FAAFP, undergraduate medical education program chair. “We want these students to feel fulfilled by their growth here and connect with our community. It is also our hope that they’ll want to continue their graduate medical education training at Bayhealth and take care of our local residents through one of our newly launched residency programs in family medicine, internal medicine and general surgery.”
