As David Raymond Kalodner, Jr., (DO ’15) (right) looks toward the start of his residency in family medicine at PinnacleHealth Community General Osteopathic Hospital in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he knows that his father was the catalyst for his path to PCOM, and to medicine.
“My father [David Raymond Kalodner Sr., DO ’82, (left)] graduated from PCOM and completed his residency in family medicine at the very same hospital I’ll be going to, so I am truly following in his footsteps,” the younger Mr. Kalonder explains. “My father is the reason I initially considered PCOM and eventually decided to attend, and is one of the main reasons I am pursuing a career in family medicine.”
Mr. Kalodner is just one of many PCOM students who celebrated their match in February, for the AOA Match Day, and in March, for the NRMP Match Day. This year’s DO class had a staggering 100 percent GME match rate—62 percent of whom initially choose a primary care discipline.
Clinical psychology students at PCOM also had a strong showing during the Association of Psychology Postdoctoral and Internship Centers Match in March; 100 percent of students enrolled in the PsyD program matched to their chosen sites.
Founded in 1899, Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine has trained more than 15,000 highly competent, caring physicians, health practitioners and behavioral scientists who practice a “whole person” approach, treating people, not just symptoms. PCOM offers the doctor of osteopathic medicine, doctor of pharmacy and doctor of psychology degrees and graduate programs in mental health counseling, school psychology, physician assistant studies, forensic medicine, organizational development and leadership, and biomedical sciences. Our students learn the importance of health promotion, education and service to the community and, through PCOM’s Healthcare Centers, provide care to the medically underserved populations in inner city and rural locations.
