Family Medicine Residency

Wheeling Hospital is excited to present an opportunity for you to join our Family Medicine Residency.

The Residency Program was established in 1975, and has graduated more than 200 family medicine physicians. Many former residents are practicing physicians in the area, and some are faculty members providing education to new residents. We also added an Osteopathic Residency where the osteopathic residents train side-by-side with their allopathic colleagues while gaining the additional skills unique to osteopathic medicine. Our program offers a variety of features to help you attain your career goals. It also combines the small town atmosphere with access to cultural, educational, sports and entertainment activities in nearby large cities.
