About Medical Education

For nearly 50 years, Firelands Regional Medical Center has provided osteopathic focused medical education in Northwest Ohio. Our community-based medical training incorporates both osteopathic and allopathic physician educators who work together in a collaborative model to provide our trainees with superb clinical educational experiences.

Firelands offers the following programs – Transitional Year Residency, Family Medicine Residency, and Hospice and Palliative Medicine Fellowship. Firelands serves as a core training site for Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (OUHCOM) and Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine (DMUCOM) and offers medical student rotations in a wide number of specialties. A meal allowance is provided, and complimentary housing is available for visiting medical students.

Our medical education department is well-known for its collegial atmosphere. We strive to maintain a healthy balance between a robust training experience and a balanced lifestyle. Residents enjoy great camaraderie, and the hospital sponsors many team-building events, such as an annual Lake Erie fishing trip, group outings to Cleveland sporting events and bowling nights.

The educational programs at Firelands Regional Medical Center are affiliated with the Centers for Osteopathic Research and Education (CORE), an integrated statewide medical education consortium formed by affiliations between Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine and teaching hospitals in Ohio, as well as other colleges of osteopathic medicine nationwide. All CORE partners are linked via real-time videoconferencing and distance learning technology as well as interactive online access.

Firelands Regional Medical Center is a tobacco-free workplace. "Tobacco-free" includes the use of any tobacco products. Pre-employment drug testing will include screening for tobacco product use, and prospective employees (including trainees) who test positive will not be hired.
