DO schools with their own teaching hospitals

Oklahoma State. That's it as far as I know. Perhaps Rowan. Even the schools with massive amounts of GME like MSU, PCOM, Ohio, etc, are largely just really strong partnerships.

ACOM is owned by Southeast Alabama Medical Center. Is it a true teaching hospital? No... but they are adding residencies every few years and the school is going through a rebranding with their logo to show they are connected.

That's not a teaching hospital. As of now they have one small, brand new IM residency.

Really? Yet an another example a growing paradigm...a hospital with a medical school attached, as opposed to the other way around!

yeah its not much but they are growing fast. With talks of opening residencies in a few more specialties(Derm and Pysch) in the near future. Its a big reason I applied even though it is a rural area.
Also they spent 5 years before opening the school creating rotation sites throughout the area before opening the school, which is drastically different from some new schools opening without any clinical sites.

Please excuse me as I am a novice but can someone tell me what the benefit of having a teaching hospital is? For example I'm shooting for a mid tier IM residency and so if my future DO school has a teaching hospital, will that help me in any way? @AnatomyGrey12

It keeps most of your rotations in a centralized place and gives you exposure to faculty and residents during the first two years which can be beneficial if you use it to your advantage for networking, research, etc. One benefit, even if you aren't terribly interested in that home program, is your letters will be more academic in nature, like from actual department chairs, PDs, faculty, etc.

It's not the end of the world if you don't have one, but it can definitely be a convenience for the motivated student.

Technically LECOM owns Millcreek Community Hospital. Would that count?

Yes. Not all students rotate there as it’s quite small. But they do have residencies in IM, FM, psych, and ortho, as well as a handful of fellowships. And maybe a transitional year internship, I forget.

I only rotated there for one block almost 4 years ago so I can’t say much of anything about it — but if your goal was to go to a DO school without having to move between years 3 & 4, LECOM’s Erie campus would make that an option.

The hospital on the NSU Davie campus was originally forecast to be open this December, though who knows if it’s going to happen. Rumor has it that it’s primarily going to be a MD site, though. It’s only going to be 200 beds so it seems unlikely too many DO students would be able to utilize it if they preferentially put the MD students there first.
