ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Five new family medicine doctors will soon enter the workforce after spending three years of their residency here in Albany.

Doctors Danielle Andrews, Sarah Codrea, Justin Lancaster, John Macon and Jennifer Yam graduated the Phoebe Family Medicine Residency program Saturday night at the Doublegate Country Club.

Program director Doctor George Fredrick said all the residents have connections to our state, and the goal of the program is to enhance health care options in Southwest Georgia.

"We look for applicants who have some sort of connection either to Albany, or Southwest Georgia, or just Georgia. The reason is we have a better chance of keeping them," said Dr. Fredrick.

One graduate described the program as a family.

"It's a sibling relationship, so we certainly enjoyed ourselves over the last three years," said Dr. Lancaster.

Faculty awards and Intern of the Year along with other awards were presented Saturday night as well.
