Campbell University Medical Students Training

medical students

Carteret Health Care continues to partner with Campbell University to train third year and fourth year medical students from Campbell University’s Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lillington, NC.

Medical students receive first-hand clinical experience during the two year training as they complete their studies and clinical rotations.

The mission of the Campbell University School of Osteopathic Medicine (CUSOM) is to educate and prepare community–based osteopathic physicians in a Christian environment to care for the rural and underserved populations in North Carolina, the Southeastern United States and the nation.

CUSOM students in years three and four are assigned to regional sites throughout North and South Carolina. Clinical experiences occur within hospital sites for inpatient experiences, in ambulatory practices, and in geriatric acute care and long-term facilities. All students will spend time in rural, small, urban and/or critical access hospitals for a rural / underserved care clinical experience. The clerkships or clinical rotations are designed to provide the student with an education in the general areas of medicine, surgery, pediatrics, obstetrics/gynecology, psychiatry, family medicine, and emergency medicine.

Carteret Health Care is a proud participant in teaching and training students in clerkships and clinical rotations to become Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine and improve the health and well-being of our community and surrounding communities. Region 6, Carteret Health Care, also partners with other facilities in Craven and Onslow counties to give our students a variety of clinical rotation experiences in many different specialty areas.
