Six new residents at Phoebe Putney's Southwest Georgia Family Medicine Residency Program got their white lab coats today.

The program's mission is to train family physicians here, hoping they'll stay in our area to practice once they finish their residency.

David Powell received his coat and said it's a sign that his hard work is paying off.

"It's definitely what I dreamed of. I've worked extremely hard. I've worked very long hours. I've put in a lot of effort into becoming a doctor and studying to become a doctor and now my dream has come into reality," said Powell.

Residents train for three years to become eligible for board certification in Family Medicine.
