Welcome from Peter Bidey, DO~ Program Director

Welcome! As your Residency Director, I am committed to making your Family Medicine residency training the experience of a lifetime. I am pleased that you are taking the time to explore the PCOM/Suburban Community Hospital Family Medicine Residency web site and hope that you find all the information you need to assist you in your search for the "right" residency program.

Choosing a residency program is one of the most important decisions of your medical career. Your future residency will be your home for the next three years. As such, it should be a place that can foster personal and professional growth. We pride ourselves on our strong collegiality among residents and the frequent professional and personal interactions with our faculty.

Our Family Medicine residency is one of the first osteopathic family medicine residencies in the country, founded by Dr. Arnold Sokol in the mid 70’s. Over the years our residency has successfully established and continues to nurture a positive learning environment that stimulates personal growth and allows for both academic and professional development. We are dedicated to the training and development of qualified osteopathic physicians to practice the specialty of Family Medicine as competent, caring, and knowledgeable primary care physicians in the ambulatory, hospital, and nursing home settings.

We're looking for bright, enthusiastic, and friendly applicants for our program. Your next three years in training will be an unforgettable experience that will prepare you for a rewarding career as a competent, capable, and caring family physician.
