Walter and Irene Baran Schuylkill Family Medicine Residency Residents

If you want to be a part of an enthusiastic and engaged small-town community and have an opportunity to help shape our rural residency, our program could be a great match for you.

We are a program that received ACGME accreditation in July 2020, and our first residents matriculated for the 2022-2023 academic year.
