Our residents manage their own patient panel in the Family Medicine Residency Clinic. They have access to all diagnostic and treatment modalities at both Forrest General Hospital and the Hattiesburg Clinic. All clinical rotation sites (aside from rural OB) utilize the same electronic medical record, Epic.
Residents receive hospital-based training on their own inpatient service, that primarily cares for their established clinic and nursing home patients. They staff the emergency department of the only level II trauma center in the region, which is among the busiest in the state. They also rotate in a 50-bed ICU.
Residents train in a rural hospital that practices full-spectrum obstetrics, and receive dedicated gynecologic training at a local women’s health center. They are exposed to pediatrics in their continuity clinic, private pediatric clinics, school-based clinics, and on a resident-run inpatient pediatric service.
