The Wright Center trains both allopathic and osteopathic residents to become primary care physicians. In addition to a patient-centered grounding in internal medicine, The Wright Center provides a sturdy foundation from which many graduates have chosen to pursue additional training in hospital medicine or various subspecialties—for example, The Wright Center offers a fellowship program in cardiovascular medicine. The Center is a community-based, independent organization not affiliated with any one hospital, so our only priority is to provide the best education to our residents and the best care to our patients.
In this regard, The Wright Center has attained notable recognition. The Center has achieved Level III Medical Home status with the National Center for Quality Assurance, and been named one of only eleven Teaching Health Centers by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources.
At The Wright Center, we pride ourselves on safe, accessible, state of the art patient care, and on the hands-on, highly interactive relationship between residents, faculty and patients. While we emphasize a commitment to medical knowledge, as demonstrated by our graduates’ commendable board pass rate, we continually work to integrate improvement and innovation into our curriculum and our residents’ practice in order to provide patients the finest care.
