INDIANAPOLIS – Newly minted physicians will begin honing their skills in the Family Medicine Residency Program at Franciscan St. Francis Health on July 1.
The 36-month program launches the start of their family medicine careers. Residents practice out of the hospital’s Family Medicine Center in Indianapolis, where they see patients of all ages and incomes. They also provide care for expectant mothers and deliver babies for many of these patients at the hospital’s Indianapolis campus.
This year’s class, which was expanded to eight participants, includes: Elizabeth Arneman, DO, Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences; Sarah Astorga, MD, Indiana University School of Medicine; Nathan Billington, MD, St. Louis University School of Medicine; Paul Day, MD, University of Louisville School of Medicine; Jon Feist, MD, University of Louisville School of Medicine; Brandon Hockenberry, University of Nevada School of Medicine; Tim Musick, MD, University of Nevada School of Medicine; and Amanda Smith, MD, University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine.
“We are so pleased and excited with our results and the calibre of these residents,” said Richard Feldman, MD, program director. “We could not have asked for a better outcome.”
More than 225 physicians have completed residencies at Franciscan St. Francis since the program began, most choosing to remain in Indiana to establish family medicine practices.
