Residency in Family Medicine

Welcome to the Penn State Hershey Family Medicine Residency Program at Mount Nittany Medical Center!

We are thrilled to expand Penn State Hershey and Centre County's ability to meet the growing need for family medicine physicians.  Residents will benefit from access to rich educational resources from Penn State University, Penn State Hershey Medical Center, and Mount Nittany Health including accomplished faculty educators.   

Our three-year program is developed in conjunction with Mount Nittany Health and other local organizations in order to provide superior care to Centre County residents.  With only 6 slots per year, residents can receive more individualized attention, a hallmark of the Regional Medical Campus experience.  The program provides a complete, sensitive, and compassionate training opportunity for family physicians. Faculty and staff are committed to excellence and continuous improvement of education and patient care.

I encourage you to explore the innovative and challenging curriculum we have designed to prepare family physicians to practice effectively and thoughtfully.
