HCMC Welcomes Medical Students for the 2019-2020 Academic Year

Cutline: Pictured are third year medical students from Lincoln Memorial University and William Carey University completing rotations at Henry County Medical Center for the 2019-2020 academic year.

PARIS, TN –Henry County Medical Center is pleased to welcome medical students for one year as part of rotations that are required for their program. These students join us from Lincoln Memorial University – DeBusk College of Osteopathic Medicine (LMU-DCOM) in Harrogate, Tennessee and William Carey University – College of Osteopathic Medicine located in Hattiesburg, Mississippi.

Henry County Medical Center is proud to help facilitate a detailed learning experience for the students. We are glad to partner with LMU-DCOM and William Carey University- College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Community-based training is one of the two major clinical training models used in medical education today. It provides for an excellent training atmosphere for the third and fourth year osteopathic medical students and affords the best opportunity of achieving its mission of training primary care physicians for rural and underserved areas in the South. HCMC has partnered with LMUDCOM (TN) and WCUCOM (MS) to achieve this goal and has organized training around our HCMC “Hub Site.”

Hub Sites are clinical training sites capable of providing all of the Core and Selective Rotations within an hour’s drive of a central location. Osteopathic medical students in their third and fourth years (OMS-3, OMS-4) will reside and participate in the communities in which they are training.  HCMC is building a multidisciplinary educational environment along with our Physician Assistant Students from Bethel University that will equip them to better serve our community.

“HCMC is moving forward with our goal to train physicians with a passion for excellence in rural health,” said Amanda J. Finley, DO FACOI FACP, Internal Medicine Hospitalist and Director of Medical Education.

Please join us in welcoming the following medical students to Henry County Medical Center: Andrew James, LMU-DCOM; OLuwaseun Olusanya, LMU-DCOM; Spencer Rhodes, William Carey University; Katherine Sullivan, LMU-DCOM; Megan Tuttle, LMU-DCOM; Joseph Weigold, LMU-DCOM; Brittany Zeller, LMU-DCOM; Michael Zornes, William Carey University.
