Welcome From Our Program Director

Thank you for your interest in East Central MS HealthNet Rural Family Medicine Residency Program. Our program is a rural based, community centered family medicine training program. It consists of a consortium of two large, full service, multi-specialty hospitals in Meridian, Mississippi and four critical access hospitals nearby. This gives us the opportunity to train in rural real life medical setting. Our goal is to train family physicians to be competent and comfortable practicing in a rural setting. If this is your interest, I invite you to check out our program further. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if you need any additional information. Good luck to you as you move into the next important phase of your training.
