Get to know Glady Mathew, MD, family medicine resident.

Career goal: To evolve into a well-rounded and competent primary care physician who is equipped to handle a wide variety of in-office procedures and disease presentations. My interests include global, women’s health and mental health. 

“A unique aspect of my training experience has been my involvement with the community events so far.”

What makes your LVHN training program different than other programs across the country?

LVHN’s Rural Family Medicine Program places an emphasis on caring for the community of Schuylkill. As residents, we are submerged in community events and are encouraged to seek out the needs of the community to better serve them. We have the support of a larger network hospital such as Lehigh Valley Health, which gives us plenty of support in all things related to GME.  

What has been the most extraordinary part of your training experience so far? 

A unique aspect of my training experience has been my involvement with the community events so far. We have attended meetings with our local community service members, attended high school events and more, which gave us an opportunity to get to know the community outside of regular patient care. Another unique aspect of our program includes the opportunity to engage in the medication-assisted treatment (MAT) program, which enables us to provide care for patients with opioid use disorders.

What is one piece of advice you would share with someone as they select a training program?

Choose a program that values your well-being and trusts your instinct.

What does it mean to be a resident at LVHN?

Being a resident at LVHN means that you are valued here, and your opinions and well-being are given high importance.
