Dr. Robin Conley, member of ACOM’s inaugural class of 2017, was selected as 2019 Resident of the Year at the EC-HealthNet Family Medicine Residency Program in Meridian, MS.
The Resident of the Year is chosen by his or her colleagues based on who exemplifies the program’s values, work ethic, competency, contributions, and team-based skills. Recipients typically exhibit characteristics consistent with principles and practices at their residency program and encourage other residents and students to be their best.
EC-HealthNet Family Medicine Residency Program was founded on the principle of teaching family medicine physicians to meet the critical need for patient care within rural settings. The program’s training curriculum is designed to provide its 18 residents with the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed as primary care providers. The residents also work side by side with multiple community preceptors to have one on one experience managing medical issues in areas such as cardiac care, emergency room care, surgical care, orthopedics, pulmonary medicine, nephrology, obstetrics and gynecology, and psychiatric care. The curriculum is tailored to create well-rounded residents who are equipped with both the knowledge and the confidence to work in the rural setting.
Congratulations, Dr. Conley!
