Residents poised to begin making rounds at St. Francis Hospital

INDIANAPOLIS – Six physicians will begin honing their skills in the Family Medicine Residency Program at St. Francis Hospital & Health Centers in late June.

The 36-month program launches their start of their family medicine careers. Residents practice out of the St. Francis Family Medicine Center in Beech Grove, where they see patients of all ages and incomes. They also provide care for expectant mothers and deliver babies for many of these patients.

The residents are Kile Carter, M.D., (Indiana University School of Medicine); Brian Coppinger, M.D., (IU School of Medicine); Alfie Diamond, M.D. (IU School of Medicine); Angela Hackman, M.D. (University of Kentucky College of Medicine); Eric Hartman, M.D. (University of Arkansas College of Medicine); and Zachary LaMaster, D.O. (Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine of Midwestern University).

“For 35 years, our program has trained physicians in the clinical and academic aspects of family medicine, while never losing sight of our mission to treat each patient with individualized care and compassion,” said Richard Feldman, M.D., residency program director.
