Early December is a time of high importance for physicians in training around the nation, as many match with programs to continue their medical training in desired specialty programs.
Magnolia Regional Health Center (MRHC) Graduate Medical Education (GME) was well represented with seven physicians matching in their fields of choice. The seven physicians, comprised of five internal medicine residents and two cardiology fellows, will soon relocate to continue their training.
“Our extraordinary match this year to excellent, renowned fellowship programs in five different specialties exemplifies the caliber of our trainees at MRHC.” said Dr. Hayes Baker, internal medicine physician and internal medicine program director at MRHC GME. “I am so proud of all of them and know that they will represent MRHC well. I am confident each of them will continue to provide excellent care for their patients and grow as physicians in their new programs. I cannot wait to watch their careers unfold!”
Below are the residents and fellows who will be advancing to train in the specialty program of their choice:
- Jared Mullins, DO: Cardiology, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta, GA
- Aaron Brooks, DO: Pulmonary/Critical Care: Ohio Health-Doctors Hospital, Columbus, Ohio
- Dantwan Smith, MD: Cardiology, University of Mississippi Medical Center, Jackson, MS
- Jennie Nickol, DO: Cardiology, University of Nebraska, Omaha, NE
- Ahmed Abuawad, MD: Neurology/Critical Care: University of Tennessee Health Science Center, Memphis, Tenn
- Theodore Richards, DO: Interventional Cardiology, MercyOne, North Iowa Medical Center, Mason City, Iowa
- Linnea LeBaron, DO: Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah
The match process uses a detailed algorithm to best place applicants into participating residency and fellowship positions. By having both the programs and interested applicants complete a ranking list, each are then able to match accordingly.
Since the inception of the GME program at MRHC, countless residents and fellows have advanced to continue their training at facilities across the nation. Many who have moved away for training returned to Corinth and MRHC to provide invaluable care for the patients of the region.
“Each of these physicians have become a part of the MRHC family and represent our organization and GME program extremely well,” said Jim Hobson, chief executive officer at MRHC. “We thank them for providing outstanding care to our patients while at MRHC and wish them the best as they continue to advance their studies in their new specialty programs.”
