    Forrest General Hospital Family Medicine Residents 2017 Class

    Hattiesburg, Miss. — (July 14, 2017) Forrest General Hospital welcomes its fourth class of 3-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 3-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, Forrest General Hospital chooses only 6 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.
