UMMC will become a teaching hospital in bid to recruit primary care doctors
United Memorial Medical Center will "significantly expand its role in medical education" and recruit new doctors by becoming a teaching hospital, hospital officials said Monday morning. UMMC beginning in 2013 will establish a residency program that will bring young doctors to Batavia in hopes they stay and open their own primary care practices once their residency concludes. UMMC and Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine Family Residency Program, the largest in the country, have been working for about 15 months to establish a residency program in Batavia, UMMC CEO Mark Schoell said.
