As a Family Medicine Resident at Summa Health System – Barberton Campus, you will have the opportunity to see more patients and participate in more procedures than you would at larger teaching hospitals. The reason is simple. Family medicine is the sole residency focus at our 300+ bed community hospital, so you compete with no other specialties for patient care opportunities.
