Leadership

Chief Residents

Thank you for considering our program to continue your training in internal medicine. Like our residents, the four of us have different backgrounds and life journeys, but we share at least one thing in common: a love for our training program and our residents! Although we are planning on further training in fellowship programs, we decided to delay our training for one year in order to continue teaching, mentoring and working with our wonderful faculty, residents, and students.

Mississippi is one of the most underserved states in the country and we are part of the only Level 1 academic hospital in this state. The patients that we are privileged to care for on a daily basis truly need our skills. The learning opportunities at UMMC are limitless and we know that our graduates are ready to practice independently at the end of their training. Our residents learn in a multitude of ways and our training program offers educational excellence in bedside teaching, morning report case presentations, didactic sessions at noon conferences, and with the completion of the new School of Medicine building, we are furthering our teaching in the simulation center and with ultrasound.

Mississippi is known as the 'Hospitality State' and our residents live up to this motto. As you will see firsthand when you visit our program, the residents at UMMC truly are special. The camaraderie amongst the residents is showcased in their support for one another and the fun times enjoyed outside of the hospital, whether at the annual bowling and golf tournaments, crawfish boil, or spontaneous gatherings at local pubs, festivals, and minor league baseball games.

We look forward to meeting you!

Christa, Kelley, Keith and Thomas
