"Williamsport is an amazing community with far more amenities than I would have thought when first applying. The family centered program helped to prepare me to be a much more well-rounded Physician with a broader scope of experience than I would have been able to get in many other programs. I loved training in Williamsport so much that after only a few years away I knew I had to come back and rejoin the system that I loved so much."

"Family Medicine Residency was my first choice. Not only did I have excellent training that prepared me well for my career, but my family and I were welcomed with an overwhelming sense of community. I truly miss the comraderie and great mentors that made my training above and beyond. Never have I doubted my choice in Residency

"I appreciate that my training in Williamsport prepared me to take a job that is full spectrum (other than OB). I'm comfortable doing inpatient, outpatient, ER, taking moonlighting shifts as a hospitalist or pediatrician, and I feel prepared to do any of that without hesitating."

"During training I felt supported by attendings and formed strong bonds with the other residents, which helped me feel like I had a safe place to learn and ask questions. The depth and variety of cases I saw in the office as well as in the hospital helped to give me invaluable experience and to hone my critical thinking skills, which have served me well now that I am out in practice. Since Williamsport is a relatively small medical community I also got to learn a lot from the specialists and work one-on-one with them in a way that has given me the ability to better manage my patients and to let them know what to expect when I must refer them to such specialists. I am also very glad that Williamsport provided me the opportunity to learn to do colposcopies and training for Nexplanon, both of which I now do as part of my practice."

"At Williamsport Family Medicine Residency program, you will receive challenging and thorough training from expert full-spectrum physicians who truly care about the patients they serve. Looking back on my residency experience, I am struck by how each and every faculty member cares for the entire patient. I am also grateful for the ways fellow residents built one another up and all of the friendships created during those three years."
