Phoebe welcomes five new residents

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital introduces five new resident physicians today at 2:00PM in the Wetherbee Lobby of the hospital's main campus.

The keynote speaker for this year's ceremony is Chris Clark of Atlanta, President and CEO of the Georgia Chamber of Commerce. Clark is consistently named one of Georgia Trend magazine's 100 Most Influential Georgians and as one of the 100 Most Influential Atlantans by the Atlanta Business Chronicle.

The new doctors will be introduced to the community, presented with the traditional white lab coat and pager, and welcomed with gifts from local businesses by Albany's Chamber of Commerce.

The Class of 2018 includes Antwuan Allen, MD; Gary Clay, MD; Shayla Curtis, MD; Kristen Krakovec, MD; and Daniel Smith, MD. The residents train with Southwest Georgia Family Medicine for three years to become eligible for board certification in family medicine. While in the residency program, all resident physicians will work in multiple clinical areas at the hospital and around Albany.

“The Southwest Georgia Family Residency Program has proven successful since its start in 1993,” said Joel Wernick, President and CEO, Phoebe Putney Health System. “In the program's tenure, seventy percent of the residency graduates are currently practicing in Georgia, with the majority of those practicing in southwest Georgia. It has proven to be a tremendous asset to our region and to our state.”
