Medical Student Training

Campbell University Medical Students Training

medical studentsCarteret Health Care and Campbell University have partnered together to train third year Medical Students at Carteret Health. In 2018, eleven students from Campbell University Jerry M. Wallace School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lillington became part of the inaugural program at Carteret.

Medical students will receive first-hand clinical experience during the training as they complete their studies and clinical rotations. In 2019, these same students will begin their fourth year rotations here and be joined by eleven new third year Medical Students.

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.

medical student training with needlesCUSOM students in years three and four are assigned to regional sites. 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 population.
