School, hospitals partner for program
Midwestern University in Glendale and John C. Lincoln Hospitals in Phoenix are working together to augment local medical resources by creating a general surgery training program for osteopathic medical school graduates.

The new osteopathic general surgery residency program, accredited by the American Osteopathic Association, was jointly developed by Midwestern and John C. Lincoln. The program was approved for two residents to begin each year, for a total of 10 residents in the program.

Residents will be trained at both John C. Lincoln North Mountain Hospital, 250 E. Dunlap Ave., and John C. Lincoln Deer Valley Hospital.

Any graduate of an accredited osteopathic medical school may apply to participate in the surgical residency program. Residents selected to participate in the program will complete training in basic general surgery, advanced laparoscopic, robotic, colorectal, trauma, surgical critical care, endoscopy, vascular and cardiothoracic procedures.
