Three-year residents join FGH residency program


Forrest General Hospital welcomes its fourth class of three-year residents into the Forrest General Family Medicine Residency Program.

These doctors will practice at the Forrest General Hospital Family Medicine Center located on the first floor of Hattiesburg Clinic and will rotate through many different departments throughout the three-year program.

Additionally, the residents have an inpatient service allowing them to admit patients into the hospital as necessary and continue to provide them care.

To be accepted into this highly-competitive residency program, applicants must be graduates of accredited United States or Canadian medical schools or colleges of osteopathic medicine in the United States, and they must hold an unrestricted license to practice medicine in Mississippi. After all applications have been reviewed, only the best candidates are selected for on-site interviews during which they will be judged based on their aptitudes, academic credentials, personal characteristics, and communication skills. Of those interviewed, FGH chooses only six candidates to become residents.

The Forrest General Family Medicine Residency Program is a community-based program built on a reputation of inspiring world-class care. In an environment both nurturing and challenging, residents gain direct guidance and shoulder-to-shoulder experience with a seasoned team of physicians and staff. The momentum established here and cultivated by the knowledgeable and innovative team serves to open doors of possibility for the residents. Respected physicians and staff, in tandem with the thriving and ever-growing partnerships between FGH and medical staff provide a rare glimpse at what it can truly mean to C.A.R.E.
