HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Six physicians, all from Mississippi, are the first to participate in a new residency program at Forrest General Hospital.

They just graduated from medical school and have been at the hospital since June 30 undergoing orientation.

They begin their rotations at Forrest General and Hattiesburg Clinic on Aug. 1.

"I graduated from North Forrest High School and also attended Southern Miss for undergraduate studies, and so it feels really good to come home and care for my community," said Rasheeda Crowell, M.D., a participant in the residency program.  She went to medical school at UMC in Jackson.

"Certainly, it's what we've been working for," said James Wilkinson, D.O., another particpant in the program. "After four years of medical school, you want to get into a residency and learn your craft and hone it and eventually, get out there and start practicing in the community," he said.  Wilkinson was in the inaugural graduating class from the medical school at William Carey University. 

"This is a big spot on our timeline, this takes us into the teaching realm and it offers a lot of opportunities, both for Forrest General, Hattiesburg Clinic and the Hattiesburg area," said Mikell Chatham, residency administrator for Forrest General Hospital.

Each doctor will do a three-year residency at Forrest General Hospital.
