Health Professionals Information

Medical Residency

Providing clinical and professional development.
At St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital, we have a proud heritage of graduate medical education. Since 1954 we have provided high quality osteopathic medical education. We currently have six osteopathic residency programs in:
  • Family Medicine
  • Internal Medicine
  • General Surgery
  • Anesthesiology
  • Otolaryngology/Facial Plastic Surgery
  • Orthopedic Surgery
The ACGME and AOA have entered into an agreement for there to be a single accreditation progress. As such, the Internal Medicine, General Surgery, Anesthesiology, Otolaryngology/Facial Plastic Surgery and Orthopedic Surgery will be closing with the graduates of 2020. These are all AOA accredited programs and will not be applying for ACGME accreditation.

The Family Medicine residency has applied for ACGME accreditation and is in "Pre-Accreditation" status. The results of the initial inspection are pending.
The St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital Family Medicine Residency program accepts applications only through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) of the Association of American Medical Colleges.

Application materials should include:
  • ERAS common application with personal statement
  • Dean's letter
  • Medical school transcript
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • COMLEX scores for all parts taken prior to interview
  • Passage of COMLEX Part II is required prior to start of program.
All ERAS applications will be reviewed by the FM Program Director and candidates selected for interviews will be notified by the FM Program Director.
