Curriculum by Year

As a rural training program, residents complete their first-year hospital rotations with the St. Peter Family Medicine Residency program interns at Providence St. Peter Hospital. Second and third-year rotations are done predominately at Providence Centralia Hospital.

Residents have inpatient and obstetrical rotations in all three years to develop the skills to continue practicing full-spectrum medicine post-graduate. While at Providence Centralia Hospital, there are no other residents other than our program.

Obstetrical Experiences:

  • Residents care for prenatal patients in their continuity clinic and are involved in their deliveries and postpartum care.
  • Residents spend additional time with our obstetrical group in their office to gain skills in managing obstetrical patients in a high volume practice in Centralia.
  • While at PCH, residents receive a lot of autonomy, working directly with their attendings. Residents gain experience with c-sections during their rotations and can utilize elective time and longitudinal time for additional obstetrical experience if desired.

"The learning environment of our clinic in a rural setting is very strong. The hospital training we get is beyond what someone in a rural track would expect because we get to rotate at two different hospitals, Providence St. Peter and Providence Centralia." - Benjamin May, DO, class of 2020
