MEET OUR RESIDENTS

A RESIDENT'S PERSPECTIVE

Welcome to the Forrest General Hospital Family Medicine Residency Program!

Welcome to the FGH Family Medicine Residency Program. We appreciate you taking an interest in our program. We are an unopposed, community-based program at a regional referral center, and are associated with the largest private multispecialty clinic in Mississippi. We have established ourselves as having an optimal training environment that provides endless learning opportunities in a family atmosphere. Residents are exposed to essentially all adult subspecialties, while receiving extensive training in general pediatrics. This allows for a one-of-a-kind experience that provides exposure to general pathology, different practice models, as well as one-on-one training–where we work directly with potential future partners.

 

Along with a well-orchestrated multidisciplinary experience, our dedicated core faculty make this program special. They are excellent teachers, finding teaching moments in every encounter. They are genuinely invested in us as physicians and people, and provide continued support even after residency training is complete. This program provides the training and environment to become a lifelong learner and proficient family medicine physician. I encourage you to consider us for your post-graduate training.
