Dual Certification: The Best of Both Worlds

Since the residency is dually accredited, osteopathic residents are also board-eligible with the American Board of Family Medicine.

Osteopathic Family Residency and Rotating Internship Affiliations

Our Osteopathic Family Medicine Residency and Rotating Internship programs are sponsored by and affiliated with the Consortium for Excellence in Medical Education (CEME), an Osteopathic Postgraduate Training Institute (OPTI) located at Nova Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.

The Medical Education Department is also affiliated with the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine–Georgia Campus for medical student rotations.

As the region's leading provider of healthcare, Columbus Regional Health has touched the lives of most of the children and adults in this region through its comprehensive network of services. Located in the West Georgia city of Columbus, Columbus Regional was established in 1986 as a not-for-profit health services organization, but its roots can be traced back to 1836 when the local hospital was a small wooden building on the banks of the Chattahoochee River.
