Memorial Hospital welcomes ten new family medical residency students.

During today’s meet and greet, residents met staff and were welcomed on behalf of the hospital. The residents will be working in Memorial clinics and hospitals for the next three years.

As physicians, the residency transitions them to become independent doctors.

They will be supervised and trained to give the best care to Gulf Coast patients. Memorial Hospital DIO Dr. Gretchen Holmes said, “We wanted to give the hospital an opportunity to meet them and say hi before they get started and we put them to work. I’m sure they’re very nervous. This is nerve-wrecking. Before they were here, they were medical students and then they graduated and now they’re physicians. So, now there’s a lot more responsibility and they have a lot to learn.”

Residents will also learn the ins and outs of operating within a health system.

Memorial Hospital at Gulfport welcomes a host of new medical school grads to train in its residency program as it enters its second year after accreditation.

As the first-years will help guide the newcomers, the two groups got together over zoom this afternoon to get to know each other.

Each group has about ten new physicians and the program is the only one of its kind on the Gulf Coast.

Program Director Jimmy Dimitriades says the Gulf Coast has a great need for more doctors as our seaside community grows and more lifelong residents age. “At one point we’ll have 30 family medicine residents with 10 graduating each year. A good number of those will stay in the area. You know, when people learn to love a community, they tend to stay pretty close — and some will spread their wings and go to other areas. And so, there’s always an increasing need for primary care.”

These residents will fill gaps in Coast healthcare in some of our underserved areas.
