Residents Receive welcome

June 28, 2007

Albany - Physicians in training receive two of the most important tools of the trade Thursday.   Phoebe Putney welcomed five new residents with lab coats and pagers (affectionately known as shackles).

The class of 2010 was encouraged by Lt. Governor Casey Cagle to keep the needs of patients first. Albany native Malcolm Floyd is a prime example of what Phoebe is attempting to accomplish, home grown family practice doctors who return to South Georgia.

He said, "This residency program goes out of its way to make its residents feel supported. I think the community is behind the residents 100%, and it's an excellent place to raise a family."

Lt. Governor Cagle said, "It's so critical that we attract quality individuals like this to come to communities in rural parts of our state, like Southwest Georgia to really have a huge impact. Not only in for our community, but also in the lives of each individual patient."  

Floyd says in addition to spending his residency in Albany, he hopes to practice here when he's done.
