Program Description

It is the goal of this program to meet the ever changing needs of residency training in General Surgery to meet the demands of training the modern surgeon. We provide progressive, continuous training to satisfy all requirements necessary for eventual certification in General Surgery by the American Osteopathic Association through the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery. This program is under the direction of the Department of General Surgery at Grandview Hospital through the Residency Program Director at Grandview Hospital.

The Department of General Surgery at Grandview Hospital assumes the obligation to supervise training of General Surgery Residents.

Residents are exposed to basic sciences as related to surgical practice, and have required rotations in various specialty areas relating to the practice of surgery. (This will be defined more clearly later in this outline). There is special emphasis on developing technical skills, diagnostic competency, sound medical and surgical judgment, preoperative and postoperative care, as well as progressive development and responsibility in the seven competencies: professionalism, Osteopathic principles and practices, medical knowledge, communication and interpersonal skills, practices-based learning, systems-based practice, and patient care. Emphasis is placed on high ethical and moral standards.

Education

Grandview's General Surgery residency program provides a variety of educationally based programming:

  • Weekly citywide Grand Rounds in conjunction with Wright State University General Surgery Residency Program.
  • Daily morning didactics.
  • Monthly journal clubs and M/M.
  • Monthly CORE lectures (full day of didactics with General Surgery residents from across Ohio).
  • Once a week resident-guided power point presentations.

In addition, first year residents will participate in Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS).

Fellowships: Grandview's General Surgery program offers exposure to one surgery fellowship in the course of the residency through Grant Medical Center in Columbus, which offers a Trauma/Critical Care Fellowship.

Program Overview

For over 80 years, Grandview Hospital has been offering quality osteopathic healthcare to the residents of west central Ohio. The department of internal medicine and its associated residency-training program has been an integral part of that community service.

Now a member of the larger Kettering Health Network, an association of four hospitals consisting of over 1000 beds and more than 700 physicians, Grandview Hospital remains one of the largest osteopathic teaching hospitals in the United States. It is located in Dayton, Ohio, a mid-sized city with a long history of innovation.

Grandview Hospital has been the recipient of many quality awards over the past decade. The department of internal medicine is particularly proud of being named for three years by U.S. News & World Report as one of the top fifty respiratory hospitals in the country. As a result of the care provided by graduates of this program, our hospital is listed with some of the most recognized teaching and research facilities in the world.

The Grandview Hospital internal medicine residency program is approved by the AOA for eight residents. Our teaching panel consists of over 50 board certified or board eligible DO/MD faculty members. The faculty is composed of highly motivated individuals who contribute significantly to the growth and development of our residents.

The Grandview Foundation provided the internal medicine program with a five-year development grant (ending 2007) that resulted in much of the program we have today. Appropriate funding was allocated to develop a faculty system, where the highest level (consisting of the program director and the program coordinators) provide approximately 100 contact hours per month in the areas of administration, academics, research, ambulatory care, osteopathic principles, and professional leadership/business management.

Accompanying this improved residency program structure is an exciting new curriculum.

Opened July 2003, the 13,000 square foot Cassano Community Health Center houses the internal medicine clinic. This state of the art building allows us to provide quality care to the citizens of the city of Dayton. It includes on site facilities for education, radiology and laboratory services. We share this facility with family medicine, neurology, ENT, surgery, obstetrics, and orthopedics.

Our board certification rate remains high and numerous graduates of the program have obtained quality positions in AOA and ACGME subspecialty training programs. Many of our graduates have chosen to practice as 'traditional' Osteopathic internists, providing excellent office and hospital based care.

Program Description

Grandview Hospital offers a three year general internal medicine training program with strong emphasis upon the unique role of the osteopathic internist as a ‘bridge’ between primary care and specialty care physicians. The role of the osteopathic internist as a consultant is of significant concern, and preparation of the resident to provide both ambulatory and hospital-based consultation is a primary goal of the training program.

The training program offers individuals a career that combines ambulatory and hospital medicine and can be used as an endpoint for practice or as a bridge to subspecialty training.

Highly dedicated volunteer faculty support the program. The core faculty consists of eight board-certified or board-eligible general internists. In addition, a number of board certified/eligible subspecialty physicians participate on a regular basis, including:

  • cardiology (7)/electrophysiology (1)
  • nephrology (5)
  • oncology (3)
  • pulmonary (3)/critical care (1)
  • rheumatology (1)
  • infectious disease (2)
  • dermatology (2)
  • neurology (5)
  • allergy (1)
  • endocrinology (2)

Four compensated board-certified general internists support the ambulatory continuity care clinic , which operates one day per week.

The program is approved by the AOA for 15 residency positions. We currently have 13 positions filled:

(5) PGY1 interns

(4) PGY2 residents

(4) PGY3 residents

Based upon the success of the program, it is our desire to increase the number of positions to twelve should additional funding be acquired.

Faculty

The current structure creates a core faculty, which includes the program director, and the program coordinators. The department of medical education, the department of internal medicine, and suggestions from the resident physicians, selects the former, while the latter are selected by the program director with input from the department of internal medicine and suggestions from the resident physicians.

The program director is directly responsible for the oversight of the academic curriculum and the ambulatory care experience.

The program coordinators include:

  • Business of Medicine Coordinator
  • Clinical Reasoning Program Coordinator
  • Osteopathic Principles & Practice Coordinator

The associate faculty includes approximately 20 physicians who participate at the request of the program director or the program coordinators. Their participation includes:

  • attending board/book review
  • attending grand rounds
  • attending journal club
  • attending lectures/tumor board
  • providing lectures/tumor board

The affiliate faculty is selected from GVH/SVH medical staff. This group provides the rotation-based resident inpatient/outpatient resident training.

Faculty development is an ongoing process and includes such areas as:

  • mentoring skills/leadership/personal development skills
  • basic science/evidence-based clinical knowledge
  • billing/coding/documentation
  • information technology and business management skills

Program Description

The Neurology Residency at Grandview Hospital is a comprehensive four year program that will prepare the candidate for a career in adult neurology. Upon completion of the course of training, the graduate will be eligible to sit for the national certifying examination in neurology, which is administered by the American Osteopathic Board of Neurology and Psychiatry (AOBNP).

The resident's training begins with the OGME 1 year. This is a preparatory year for the trainee which has a heavy emphasis on internal medicine. The resident will have rotations in general internal medicine, cardiology, critical care, emergency medicine and ophthalmology. There will be 2 months spent on the neurology inpatient service and 1 month on sleep medicine. Hospital coverage will be a part of experience. All these rotations will be at Grandview and Southview Hospitals.

The OGME 2 year is an immersion in hospital neurology. The resident is assigned to run the inpatient services at either Grandview (350 beds) or Kettering Hospitals (500 beds). Responsibilities include admissions to the service, consultations and an active role in the stroke team. Procedures include diagnostic as well as therapeutic lumber punctures. The resident will be in charge of teaching rotators on the service, which include medical students, medicine as well as psychiatry residents.

In the second half of the OGME 2 year there is a required 2 month rotation on the epilepsy service. Here the resident will learn to interpret electroencephalograms and manage patients with epilepsy. Ambulatory EEG, intraoperative monitoring and an epilepsy monitoring unit are all integral to this rotation. Upon completion of the rotation, the resident is expected to continue to interpret EEGs on a scheduled basis for the remainder of their training. There will also be a month rotation in the ambulatory setting at the Dayton Center for Neurological Disorders. During the second half of the year, the resident will begin seeing their own patients in the Neurology Clinic at Cassano Health Center. They will follow this set of patients throughout the remainder of their training program.

The OGME 3 year begins with a 3 month required rotation on the EMG service. During this rotation the resident will focus on peripheral neurology and learn how to perform electrodiagnostic testing. EMG clinics will be regularly scheduled for the resident upon completion of the rotation in order to further refine their diagnostic skills.

A 2 month required rotation in Child Neurology is completed during the second half of the OGME 3 year. This is with the Neurology Department at Children's Hospital in Dayton. There is exposure to inpatients as well as the ambulatory patients with neurological disease. There is opportunity to interpret pediatric EEGs. Monthly, throughout the residency, the child neurologists host a child neurology journal club, which focuses on issues that have relevance to the adult neurologist.

The resident will continue to gain experience in adult neurology the remainder of the OMGE 3 year in the ambulatory as well as hospital settings. Hospital rotations may include one of the other four institutions the faculty covers. These rotations allow the resident to have more autonomy and work one on one with the faculty members. Elective rotations are encouraged and are arranged individually with the program director. Rotations through the hospital network include sleep medicine, memory disorders, epilepsy, neurosurgery, neuroradiology, vascular/interventional neurology and PM&R. The resident can spend time in the Neuro-rehabilitation & Balance Unit. Time is allotted to learn the use of Botox for a variety of disorders.

During the OGME 4 year, the resident embarks on a 3 month required rotation in neuropathology. This will serve to enhance the understanding of neurological disease at the basic science level. During this rotation there is time for ongoing exposure to outpatients, EEG and EMG. Time is allotted for study.

The remainder of the senior year places a heavy emphasis on outpatient neurology and practice management skills. The residents are involved in the business of medicine from their first day however; this becomes more important as the resident nears the end of the program and prepares to enter practice. Exposure to this is gleaned from the faculty's private practice. There is also required hospital coverage, with the resident being expected to function at the level of an attending neurologist.

Didactics are a vital part of the program. Here is an overview of the academic schedule:

1. Clinical Neurology (weekly): This 1.5 hour session focuses on the basic science of neurology as it pertains to the clinical setting. Emphasis will be placed on anatomy, physiology and the clinical examination. The spectrum of neurological disorders will be entertained.

2. EEG (monthly): Individual case studies and recording will be discussed from actual patients. Emphasis will be placed on identification of normal electrocerebral activity and the interface of abnormal finding with the clinical history and neuropathology.

3. EMG (monthly): Individual case studies will be discussed with the non-EMGers discussing the anatomy and differential diagnosis. The EMGers will discuss the methodology by which they will refine the differential and arrive at their diagnosis. Clinical management will be reviewed.

4. General Neurology Case Presentation (2 times per month): The residents will present cases 2 times per month to be discussed from the molecular level to the clinical setting in which they present. This is an informal discussion meant to refine the resident's diagnostic approach. This session will be proctored by one or more of the faculty.

5. Journal Club (monthly): This critical review of the current literature will involve recent developments as well as areas of controversy in the field.

6. Child Neurology Journal Club (monthly): This conference will be hosted by the child neurology service at Children's Hospital and will focus on areas of relevance to adult neurologists.

7. Child Neuroradiology Conference (monthly): This conference will be hosted by the neuroradiolosists at Children's Hospital and will focus on cases of interest to neurology and neurosurgery.

8. Neurology Osteopathic Residents Organization (monthly): NORO is a conjoint teleconference with the department of Neurology and Ophthalmology at Michigan State University. A six hour series of lectures covering various topics in neurology from September though May.

9. Board Review: This series of informal discussions is led by the senior residents in preparation for taking Part I of the AOBNP Examination.

There are many additional lecture programs which occur throughout the year through the hospital or a pharmaceutical company.

The Obstetrics & Gynecology residency is a 4 year, Option 1 program.

Program Description

Grandview/Southview Hospital's OB/GYN Residency program includes the ACOOG requirements for training in general Obstetrics and Gynecology, with a very active obstetric and surgical program based primarily out of the Southview Hospital. This is a four-year program, with both traditional and tracking positions. We have 12 AOA approved residency positions, with 10 positions funded and filled. When all twelve positions are filled, we will have 3 residents per year of training.

The surgical cases are a combination of private as well as clinic cases, worked up by the residents under direct supervision of the attending physicians. Obstetrical cases are a mix of private and clinic, all of which the residents actively participate in.

There is out-time training in all the sub-specialties. These include Maternal Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology, Gynecological Oncology, UroGynecology, Breast Surgery, Pathology, and Neonatology. Educational courses include a four-week ultrasound rotation and an ultrasound course for first year residents, with the second year resident attending a colposcopy course, and the ACOOG Fall Conference. Third year residents attend resident leadership development courses. The fourth year resident attends the Annual ACOOG Convention, and is encouraged to attend a board review course.

The residents currently see patients at Sycamore Women's Center, the OB/GYN clinic, three to four days a week. Weekday mornings from 7-8am are reserved for an hour lecture or topic review. These mornings, the residents and attendings meet for an hour to review book chapters, Precis and Prolog topics, and ACOG technical bulletins. The residents participate in the 3 rd year OU Students' CORE lectures given at the hospital on a monthly basis. They also help the 3rd and 4th yr students' OB/GYN Case Conferences, acting as mentors for these students. Our residents also attend the OB/GYN RPAC CORE meetings held once a month in Columbus.

With the opening of the new OB unit at Southview Hospital in March of l998, our delivery numbers have skyrocketed. We are now doing approximately 160 deliveries per month, and anticipate continued growth of these numbers. Our surgery numbers are excellent, with an average of 10-15 major gynecologic procedures per week. Labor and Delivery completed a major expansion in 2003, going from 5 LDRs to 12 LDRs. We have 10 residents as of academic year July 2005, and will expand to 12 residents in the next two years.

This is a very busy and active residency. The residents spend most days consumed with either OB or surgery. There is very little down time during the day. Most of our subspecialty rotations are in town, with exceptions for particular interests made on an individual basis. We are proud to have graduated a resident who has now completed subspecialty training in Urogynecology at the Mayo Clinic, originally selected over 121 other applicants.

The OB/GYN Residency at Southview Hospital is an excellent, growing program. We train highly qualified, quality residents. Our residents have developed a "Standard of Behavior" Contract for each other, requiring, among other things, Teamwork, Respect, Courtesy, and Excellence. The residents are given a great deal of autonomy, and a great deal of responsibility. The resident graduating from the OB/GYN program at Grandview/Southview is second to none. Our resident graduates have a 100% pass rate on the Written and Oral boards.

"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." (W. Yeats) Our OB /GYN residents light the way with their enthusiasm, determination, excellence, and knowledge. We hope to continue to brighten the paths of others, as we learn and grow in the Grandview/Southview OB/GYN Residency Program.

The Ophthalmology residency is a 3+1 year, Option 2 program.

Program Description

Introduction
The ophthalmology residency at Grandview Hospital is three-year program. Applicants must be graduates of an osteopathic medical school and have completed an AOA approved rotating internship. In addition, applicants must have passed both parts I, II & III of their national boards.

Internship
During internship, one rotates through many different specialties including internal medicine, surgery, neuro-radiology, neurology, and rheumatology. Intern attends weekly ophthalmology didactics and spends one half day per week at the Schrimpf Eye Center.

First Year
The first year of residency is spent at the Charles F. Schrimpf Eye Center under the supervision of the senior resident and the attending in the clinic.

One half day a week is spent with the program director in his office precepting. The resident shall also be responsible for attending all surgeries assigned by the senior resident. The resident shall make sure all history & physicals are done prior to surgery, and dictate all the operative reports.

Each resident must complete the home study course in ophthalmology by the AAO. Each resident is strongly encouraged to read through the series before his first ophthalmology knowledge assessment test (OKAP). The resident is required to take the OKAP test after each year of residency (i.e. three times).

Near the end of the first year the resident shall begin his first required out rotation. This is typically pediatric ophthalmology at Children’s Medical Center of Dayton with Dr. Bloom.

Second Year
At the beginning of the second year of residency the resident shall attend either the Stanford or Lancaster basic science course in ophthalmology. After this course the resident shall spend the next 18 moths either at the Eye Center or at out rotations.

There are usually 8 months of out rotations in each residents program. Seven of the 8 months must be spent fulfilling basic core requirements. These core requirements are: 2 months of glaucoma, 2 month of retina, 1 month of pediatrics, 1 month of neuroophthalmology, and 1 month of oculoplastics. Most of the required out rotations be done in Dayton with affiliated teaching staff of Grandview Hospital. Other rotations can be done at University of Cincinnati or the Ohio State University. Out of state rotations may also be arranged by the resident, but must first be approved by the program director. All out rotations must be approved by the program director and the DME at least two weeks prior to the rotation. Time out requests may be picked up in the Medical Education department. Each resident receives 2 weeks of vacation a year. These two weeks must be used in that year and are not cumulative. All vacation requests must be approved by the senior resident in the clinic and by the program director.

Third Year
The last 6 months of the residents program is typically spent as the senior at the Eye Center. It is during this last six months that most residents will do most of their surgical cases.

The senior resident of the clinic is responsible for making out the call schedule each month. He is also responsible for assigning where the junior residents will go for surgery. In addition, the senior is responsible for assigning journal articles for monthly journal reports.

CORO
Grandview participates in the CORO program by Michigan State University via videoconferences. The resident is responsible for attending each of these conferences even on out rotations. The resident will also present cases at the weekly grand rounds as assigned by MSU.

AOCOO
Each resident is strongly encouraged to attend the annual clinical assembly as well as the mid-year meeting of the American Osteopathic College of Ophthalmology (AOCOO). In addition the resident must be a member of the AOCOO. Each resident must comply with the standards of the AOCOO. These standards are published in the Basic standards of Ophthalmology and are provided to the resident. There are approximately 6 Dayton Area Society of Ophthalmology meetings a year and the residents are strongly encouraged to attend each of them.

Logs
Each resident must provide the program director with monthly logs at the completion of each month. These logs state where the resident spent the month, what surgical cases were attended and or performed, what reading was performed during that month, and what educational programs were attended.

DASO
There are approximately 6 DASO (Dayton Area Society of Ophthalmology) meetings a year and the residents are strongly encouraged to attend each of them.

Didactics
Each resident is assigned a weekly topic from the basic science series home study coarse to lecture to the other residents.

Call
Each resident will have call responsibilities as assigned by the senior resident. First priority is given to Grandview Hospital and Southview Hospitals. In addition the resident will take call for the emergency department at Miami Valley Hospital, level I trauma, both main and south campuses, as well as Good Samaritan Hospital on night and weeks.

Cataract Simulator
Grandview ophthalmology is fortunate to have the EyeSi simulator which uses state of the art virtual reality to simulate cataract surgery. Residents in our program can perform hundreds of virtual cataract surgeries before having to perform them on real patients!

Letter from an Alumnus

"The residency program was very hands on. This aspect of training was the most important aspect of my training. From the first day in surgery I was helping or doing parts of blephs or cataracts. The clinic was well equipped and allowed me to do many procedures like temporal art biopsies, intravitreal injections, YAG or argon lasers, Botox and eyelid repairs in the office. These opportunities gave me the confidence to do many different procedures in my office.

The office was very well equipped to do FA's, pacyimetry, visual fields as well and many others tests to use as needed.

Whether the issue was peds, glaucoma, retina or a general question, there is a wide field of expertise to draw from to help with most aspects of ophthalmology. The attendings were not only in the clinic, but available after hours to help with call issues.

Additionally, call was balanced and reasonable. Sure it was busy, this is residency, but the commute was reasonable and generally, when I needed to go to the ER, it was something "good" to see.

Grandview ophthalmology also offers many different outside training opportunities. I was sent to the Lancaster course, the San Antonio review course, one AOA meeting and most of the annual AOCOO-HNS meetings. All of these offer many great training experiences.

My training gave me the abilities to do anything I wanted to do. I am currently training as a retina fellow. I have felt comfortable in all aspects of my current training because of solid past training. This firm foundation has helped me excel in vitreo-retinal surgery and clinic.

Thank you Grandview, Dr Peets and the rest of the attendings for allowing my dream to come true."

Frequently Asked Questions

Question:    What type of candidate are you looking for at Grandview?

Answer:    We look for medical students who are interested in getting the best possible education. Our residency is challenging by design. Our goal is to take the short four years of residency and mold our residents into well-educated comprehensive ophthalmologist who can handle anything. When our residents graduate they are among the best educated physicians in the nation. Grandview's residents are typically self driven and are consistently top performers in the country on the annual Ophthalmology Knowledge Assessment Program (OKAP). Our graduating residents are ready for demands that will be placed on them when they are finished. They are also comfortable handling any surgical and medical ocular problems that may arise.

We also look for candidates who understand the importance of being able to work with others. Your fellow residents are your family; you will work with them, learn from them, and care for them. It is imperative that you are a team member.

Question:    How demanding is the residents call?

Answer:    While our call can be difficult, and may require long hours, it is that way by design. As previously stated above our residents graduate ready to handle anything. The payoff for demanding call as a resident is having the knowledge and skills to handle any ophthalmic emergency you may encounter after your training. Our residents receive an ophthalmic trauma experience that is second to none.

Question:    How do I set up a rotation at Grandview Hospital?

Answer:    Elective rotations at Grandview can be arranged by contacting Ruth Ann Freeman at 937-723-3957 or by submitting an externship application. It is highly recommended you set up these rotations early, as we can only accommodate so many, and the spots fill quickly.

Question:    How long of an elective rotation can I schedule at Grandview Ophthalmology?

Answer:    Because we can only accommodate a limited number of applicants, rotations are limited to 2 weeks (No one (1) month rotations). This way we can accommodate as many potential candidates as possible.

Question:    Is it important to rotate at Grandview as a medical student?

Answer:    Yes, this is very important, and highly recommended! Ophthalmology is very competitive and the time you spend at Grandview allows us to become familiar with you. Your time here as a student will help you see if our program is a "good fit" for you, and it will help us see if you are a "good fit" for our program.

Question:    Are my board scores important?

Answer:    Yes, your board scores are important. They are viewed mostly as a screening tool to us. They are used by us to help determine who we will interview. Once you have been granted an interview, our interview process blinds the interviewers from your academic records until after all of the interviews are conducted. Using your boards as a screening tool allows us to do two main things.

Number 1 your scores allow us to verify your ability to pass standardized tests. This ability is important for us to see as you will be asked to take standardized exams during and after your residency. During your residency you will be asked to complete the OKAP examination yearly to benchmark your academic performance versus all other ophthalmology residents in the nation. When you are completed with residency you will take your Ophthalmology Board Examination. Our goal as educators is to make sure we are providing our residents with the academic experience needed to pass their Ophthalmology Board Examination. This is how we evaluate ourselves as educators. This is why it is important for us to see that the applicant has the ability to pass standardized testing.

Number 2 we receive many applications for our residency spots, if an applicant hasn't spent time at Grandview then unfortunately your board scores are the only ruler we have to measure you against the other applicants to fill interview spots.

Question:    Do you participate in the match?

Answer:    Yes, we comply fully with the rules set up by the AOA for matching potential residents and programs.

Question:    When do residents get involved with surgery?

Answer:    Immediately. You will have unlimited access to our state of the art EyeSi surgical Simulator. You will also have monthly wet labs with pig eyes. You are also 1st scrub with several of the attendings each month. During this time with the attendings you will be introduced to intraocular surgery at a speed that is in line with your current skills. This is done in a "last is first technique", first introducing you to some of the later steps in the surgery (hydrating wounds, injecting lenses). As your skills progress you will be introduced to more and more steps. It is not uncommon for our first year residents to perform some of the more complicated steps of surgery (I&A, capsulorhexis) during their first year. Finally, you will be doing Laser surgeries with the residents as well as attending from day one.

Question:    Do residents from this residency get good numbers of surgical cases?

Answer:    Yes, residents from this program get excellent scope and volume of surgical cases. Any cases generated through the Grandview Ophthalmology clinic are your cases. Our residents far exceed the minimum number of cases required by our college (The American Osteopathic College of Ophthalmology).

Question:    Do residents from this program go on to do fellowships?

Answer:    Yes. Over the last 10 years 50% of our residents went on to complete coveted fellowships in Glaucoma, Retina, and Cornea.
