MOHAMED SHAKUR, D.O.Lincoln Memorial University, DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine
"I chose SR-AHEC for residency because of the location and I liked the fact that I felt welcomed and already apart of the family when I interviewed. I am originally from North Carolina; so, I liked the fact that my hometown is only 2 hours away. If you are looking for a quick getaway the beach is only 1.5 hours away. During the interview process Brianna and Dr. Kapoor did a great job at making me feel at ease and was accessible to answer all of my questions. Since starting, I noticed that the rest of the faculty are approachable and are willing to help you when you need them. I am looking forward to working with everyone, including my current intern class, and building stronger relationships with everyone here and future residents to come. "
