Eastern Niagara Hospital (ENH) has been approved by the American Osteopathic Association to establish a Family Medicine Residency Program.

Sponsored by the Lake Erie Consortium for Osteopathic Medical Training (LECOMT), the hospital will serve as a site for residents in the Family Medicine Program. Residents will complete rotations through numerous specialties, while being mentored by members of the hospital’s medical staff who have agreed to serve as faculty.

Dr. Joseph V. Mure
Joseph V. Mure, MD will serve as director of the program. Dr. Mure has an extensive background in the field of family medicine and education. A graduate of the University at Buffalo School of Medicine, Dr. Mure recently served as the vice chair of clinical services and assistant professor for the Department of Family Medicine at the University at Buffalo, as well as the family medicine medical director for UBMD.

Dr. Mure is a diplomat of the American Board of Family Medicine.  He has been the recipient of several awards and commendations, including being selected as one of Business First’s Healthcare 50 Award Winners in 2014.

“I am excited to be the program director for the new family medicine residency," Dr. Mure said. "This will be a first for the hospital and we appreciate the support of the medical staff. This program will provide us with the opportunity to offer a rich educational experience, where residents will be able to follow their patients throughout all aspects of their care; through testing, consults, inpatient and outpatient.  My main goal will be to recruit, train and retain primary care physicians for Western New York.”

Dr. Nicholas Varallo
Nicholas Varallo, a 35-year member of the Eastern Niagara Hospital medical staff, has agreed to serve as the program’s administrative director of medical education.  Dr. Varallo has a private practice in the Lockport community, specializing in family medicine.  He also serves as a physician in the ENH Emergency Department. Dr. Varallo has held numerous medical leadership positions at the hospital, and currently is the chief of family medicine.  He is Board Certified by the American Board of Family Physicians.

Dr. Varallo added, “I am looking forward to serving in this capacity as we start a new chapter in the Hospital’s history.  I’m also grateful to my colleagues who have agreed to assist with me in this capacity.  Their commitment and willingness to share their expertise will go a long way as the residents train for their own independent practices in medicine.”

Residents are currently being selected for the program start in July of 2016.
