The residents’ program at Genesis Community Health, which allows students to further their education in a clinical setting, is an extension of the Graduate Medical Education Consortium with FAU that was established in 2011 by Bethesda Health, Boca Raton Regional Hospital, Tenet’s Delray Medical Center, St. Mary’s Medical Center and West Boca Medical Center. The establishment of the consortium of healthcare providers furthered FAU’s commitment to increase much needed medical residency positions in Palm Beach County to ensure that the region will continue to have an adequate and well-trained physician workforce. Medical residencies take between three to seven years to complete depending on the specialty and are required as part of the training for medical school graduates to become board-certified physicians.

 

The consortium provides access to clinical settings for healthcare education, research and patient care services to support and enhance the college’s clinical training programs for residents. The consortium also helps ensure that all FAU medical students have the opportunity to interact with residents, a requirement of the Liaison Committee on Medical Education, the national organization that accredits U.S. and Canadian medical schools.
