Ten Memorial residency physicians honored at White Coat Ceremony

Memorial Hospital’s second class of residents received their white coats.

This evening, residency physicians, their families, and hospital staff gathered for a white coat ceremony. Ten new residency students kicked off their journey as physicians to care for patients along the Coast.

These new doctors come from all over the world to learn to provide the best care for families in South Mississippi. Dr. Jimmy Dimitriades said, “It’s a huge step right because they’re going from being a student to a doctor. So, all of a sudden, they have to shift gears responsibility wise and they’re still learners of course. They’re here to learn for the next three years, but they’re also practicing medicine while they’re learning under our supervision, of course.”

Now Memorial has a total of 20 family medicine residency physicians.
