Greetings from the GCSOM regional campus at Guthrie 

BreanaWelcome to Guthrie's Regional Campus of Geisinger Commonwealth School of Medicine (GCSOM). Guthrie welcomes all our GCSOM medical students in their Phase 2 and Phase 3 years. We hope that you find our campuses and staff welcoming and supportive as you continue your medical education journey. 

My primary focus is to ensure an excellent experience in your clinical years. This includes securing preceptors, advocating for a challenging yet supportive clinical environment as well as advising students as they navigate the clinical years. At Guthrie, students can rotate at the Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre or Corning Hospital in Corning, NY as well as several clinics located throughout the Southern Tier of New York and Northern Tier of Pennsylvania. Please reach out with any questions or to learn more about the numerous opportunities Guthrie can provide.

Guthrie annually publishes a catalog of elective opportunities in each specialty and subspecialty.  In order to view the catalog, a medical student must have used other AAMC services (AMCAS, MCAT, etc.) or be invited from their home institution to access the VSLO application service.  Electives can be identified by using the AAMC Find Electives page and using GUTHRIE as the institution name
