Program Description

The Grandview Medical Center Cardiology Residency Program is a fully accredited AOA residency program, dedicated to providing high-quality cardiology training under the direction of Robert E. Bulow, D.O., Program Director, and faculty. The main campus is located at Grandview/Southview hospitals. Satellite facilities include other local, accredited training sites as well as large tertiary care referral sites throughout the state of Ohio.

The program is three years in duration, with six total positions available (two positions per year of training). The institution is able to provide sufficient patient load with diverse pathology to properly train six residents, including both hospitalized and ambulatory patients, to allow for the resident's progressive management of patients. All cardiology residents will also have opportunities to maintain their skills in general internal medicine, as well as in those aspects of cardiology that relate to internal medicine.

The didactic and clinical curriculum is competency-based, including the integration of the osteopathic principles and practice. Didactic sessions include lectures, literature review, weekly cath conferences, and participation in morning report and grand rounds. Successful completion of the program will lead to Board eligibility in Cardiology via the AOBIM.

Curriculum

Rotational experiences will encompass all areas of cardiology training and will generally follow the AOA and COCATS rotational guidelines, including:

  • 8 Months Clinical Cardiology: Including active inpatient management and consultation, four months ICU/CCU.
  • 4 Months Echocardiography: Including performance and interpretation of 2 D-M Mode and color flow Doppler, nuclear medicine, peripheral vascular, etc.

Funding for these events will be contingent on the nature and timing of the conferences.
  • Outpatient Clinic: One half-day per week
Research
Research is encouraged throughout the entire 3-year fellowship, and the fellow will participate in active ongoing research projects with which the Cardiology Division is involved. An entire month block of time is also to be set aside to allow the fellow to compile and complete a selected research project.

Electives
Electives are in blocks of 4 weeks, to be spent training in the discipline of cardiovascular disease. This may include a wide spectrum of topics in the field. The elective may be spent within the institution (Grandview/Southview) or at an outside facility. The elective is subject to approval by the Program Director.

In addition, regularly scheduled didactic sessions and conferences will be conducted by the Cardiology Faculty and in conjunction with the Dept. of Internal Medicine, including Board Review, Grand Rounds, Journal Club, and an Evidence-Based Medicine forum. Special sessions focusing on the business of medicine will also be regularly available. Residents will also be expected to participate in the teaching of junior residents and medical students, and to give clinical presentations to audiences on cardiology topics. Educational programs will be held weekly and attendance records kept, documenting the full participation of the resident, program leadership and supporting staff and faculty.

Program Description

The Grandview Hospital Orthopedic Hand Fellowship is a fully-accredited AOA Hand Fellowship, dedicated to providing high-quality orthopedic training under the direction of H. Brent Bamberger, D.O., Program Director, and faculty. The main campus is located at Grandview Hospital in Dayton, OH. Satellite and affiliated training facilities include other local, accredited training sites, and may also include other major specialized training sites throughout the state of Ohio, in Kentucky, Maryland, Texas and elsewhere by elective rotation.

The purposes of the Grandview Hospital osteopathic orthopedic surgery Hand Fellowship, consistent with AOAO priorities, are to:

  • Provide continuity of didactic and clinical experiences, which will enable the fellow to become proficient in the examination, diagnosis, and treatment of orthopedic hand patients, while integrating osteopathic principles and practices as they relate to the specialty.
  • Provide the fellow with properly organized, progressive responsibility in the care of patients.
  • Provide the fellow with the necessary education and information to successfully complete the AOA certification examination.
  • Provide patients with safe, competent, and comprehensive care.

The Hand Fellowship is twelve (12) consecutive months in duration, with three (3) total positions approved and currently one (1) funded. The institution is able to provide sufficient patient load with diverse pathology to properly train three orthopedic hand fellows, including a balance of both hospitalized and ambulatory patients, to allow for the fellow's progressive management of patients. All orthopedic surgery hand fellows may have opportunities, by agreement with the Program Director, to maintain their skills in general orthopedic hand surgery, as long as it does not interfere with the core expectation to develop in their chosen hand subspecialty.

Applicants must be a general, plastics or orthopedic surgery resident from an AOA accredited osteopathic residency program. Other Application materials needed are: DME Letter, NBOME Board Scores required for Part 3, Personal Statement, three letters of recommendation and one letter of recommendation should be from Hand Surgeon.

The didactic and clinical curriculum is competency-based according to the AOA General Competencies. Didactic sessions include lectures, literature review, board review, journal club, daily and weekly conferences, and participation in morning report and grand rounds. Additional didactic activities are available at affiliated rotation sites. Successful completion of the program will lead to eligibility to sit for the CAQ exam via the AOBOS.

Positions

Approved: 2  |  Funded: 1  |  Filled: 1 OGME4

Program Description

The two-year fellowship will provide training in medical nephrology encompassing hospital and clinic based care, as well as Interpretation of renal biopsy. Development of these skills will allow the Nephrology fellow to diagnose renal disease with all of its complications as well as the systematic approach to hypertension and to devise appropriate therapeutic options. The fellowship will also allow time for research, either laboratory or clinical.

After completion of the two-year fellowship, the Nephrologist should have a broad understanding of basic renal physiology, the natural history of renal disease and hypertension, and medical and surgical therapies for the renal patient. In addition to the above the nephrologist will be versed in all forms of dialytic therapy including hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, Continuous Veno-Venous Hemodialysis (CVVHD), and hemofiltration. All avenues of dialysis will be explored and this will also encompass access insertion including femoral venous and arterial catheterization, Internal jugular and subclavian venous catheterization, and acute peritoneal dialysis catheter insertion.

In addition to responsibilities as the nephrology fellow, the fellow will have the responsibility of training other members of the Grandview Hospital house staff including students, interns and residents. The fellow will also present a Nephrology conference with an attending nephrologist present as moderator.

Pre-requisites for the Nephrology Fellow:
  • One year of an AOA approved internship
  • Two years of an AOA approved residency in Internal Medicine.
  • Approval by the Board of Trustees at Grandview Hospital.
  • Membership in the AOA throughout the Fellowship.
  • The second year of the training program is dependent on the satisfactory completion of the first year of training.
