“I chose SR-AHEC because the program was well established and organized, the patient population was diverse, and I felt like I would be well prepared for my career as a family physician. I did a medical school audition at SR-AHEC and immediately felt like part of the family. I also noticed the residents here at SR-AHEC were the smartest residents I had the pleasure of working with in medical school. They were so up to date on knowledge and really practiced evidence based medicine. I wanted to be “smart like them” and feel loved, included, and prepared. I could not have made a better choice for residency."

“I chose SR-AHEC because the people were very friendly and laid back all while conducting a formal interview. I also love that the town of Fayetteville is not too big or too small…it is just right! As a recipient of a NHSC Scholarship, I am excited to work with underserved populations, the same populations I will be working with in the foreseeable future.”

“This was the place where I felt most comfortable on the interview trail. I am excited about the opportunities to become involved with the community and to serve patient populations that I am passionate about.”

“I was impressed with the faculty, the caliber of the residents, the knowledgeable attendings, all within the comforts of my hometown. I am excited to be able to order and receive labs, get imaging and perform a variety of procedures, all under one roof!”

Jason Cooper
JASON COOPER, M.D.
Ross University

“Of the people I met on my interview day, from the attendings, residents to the support staff, I was embraced with such a warm and welcoming environment. When looking for a residency program, I knew that I wanted to be at a program where I would be supported, and I felt that I had found that at SR-AHEC.”

Daisy Kwende
DAISY KWENDE, M.D.
New York Medical College

“I chose the SR-AHEC Family Medicine Residency because the residents and faculty I met during the AAFP National Conference and the interview emulated characteristics I want to develop in myself as a physician. The support for the residents’ diverse interests, a striving for excellence by acknowledging areas of weakness, and a fundamental respect between every individual made SR-AHEC the family I wanted to be a part of for my residency training.”

Benison Mangel
BENISON MANGEL, D.O.
Lincoln-DeBuske School of Osteopathic Medicine

“I was impressed by the curriculum and the different medical services SR-AHEC offers to their patients. These in-house medical services, which include a pharmacist and behavioral services, are essential to the management of chronic medical conditions and represent a true commitment to integrative medical care.”

Jimmy Pan
JIMMY PAN, D.O.
West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine

“What drew me to this program was that it is located in a medically underserved community. The ability to serve these communities in my home state is one of the reasons I became a physician. I am excited to have the opportunity to see patients independently while have a safety net provided by preceptors and supporting staff.”
