POST-GRADUATE YEAR 1 - CLASS OF 2020

Brad Bennin, D.O.
Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine of Midwestern University

"I chose SR-AHEC because of the long history and tradition of family medicine graduate education for over 40 years. The affiliation with the AHEC system provides a great variety of educational resources. The faculty and residents are so supportive and make you feel like part of the family from day one. Lastly, the brand new state of the art clinic is incredible and will prepare us for modern practice after graduation."

Andrew Carney, D.O.
Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine

"Duke/SR-AHEC was my first choice because when I rotated here as a medical student, I was amazed at how willing each of the faculty and residents were to mentor me and create a positive learning environment. With the recent merger between allopathic and osteopathic residencies, it is reassuring knowing that this program has been established with dual accreditation long before the merger and values both MD's and DO's as faculty and residents. SR-AHEC has also just invested in a brand new multi-million dollar FM clinic which provides state of the art training facility for all aspects of family medicine care from procedures to lab testing. Most importantly though, everyone in the program treats you like family! "

Felicia Ezikpe, M.D.
American University of Antigua School of Medicine

I chose SRAHEC because the faculty, residents and staff here made me feel like part of the family from my very first encounter with them. In addition, training at SRAHEC will provide me the added benefit of joining the fight against health disparities because of the diversity of patients that we see. I believe with the excellent training provided here, I can become a great family medicine doctor.

Jessica May, D.O.

"I chose SR-AHEC for its diverse patient population and opportunities to be exposed to unique pathology. The culture here at SR-AHEC is wonderful. Everyone is very welcoming and extremely helpful. I believe that they have built an environment here that will help me to become the best family physician that I can be and I am excited to be a part of it."

Aixa Navia, M.D.
Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School

"During the application process, I was looking for a program that had full spectrum family medicine training  as well as one which valued working with the underserve population. As I was looking through programs, I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the SRAHEC residents at the AAFP conference. Their passion, compassion, and empathy towards the patients they served was inspiring. I quickly realized that the faculty were just as caring as their residents. I immediately knew that SR-AHEC would be able to help me become a competent and caring physician. I’m proud to be a part of the SR-AHEC family and I am excited to see how I grow alongside my fellow residents."

Diana Riddley, M.D.
Ross University School of Med

"From my first interaction with the faculty and staff I could tell that they were committed to nurturing and developing great residents. From day one everyone has been kind and helpful. I love that SR-AHEC works closely with non-profit agencies throughout the surrounding areas. Here I am given many opportunities to work in undeserved areas building relationships with individuals in the community. I look forward to growing as a Family physician in such a wonderful and friendly environment."

Roy Seikali, M.D.
Ross University School of Med

"I chose SR-AHEC because of the residents, faculty, and staff. Everyone is extremely welcoming and ready to help in any way you may need. The program truly puts your interests at the forefront in order to help you achieve your goals. It was clear they valued teamwork and a positive learning environment ideal for developing your education. Lastly, the brand new multi-million dollar clinic was a nice bonus."

Allie Whitley, D.O.
University of Pikeville - Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine

"Since I had never lived outside the state of Kentucky, I was hesitant about applying to an out of state program. However, at SR-AHEC I feel right at home! I was met with the same southern hospitality that I have always been accustomed to. The faculty and staff are always available to help, the new building is amazing, and the variety of patients and patient pathology creates a perfect combination. I couldn’t be more excited to be here at SR-AHEC achieving my dreams!"
