Dr. Jenna Geohagan, PGY 2
This time of year makes me reminisce on the excitement and accompanying stress that surrounds trying to figure out which program suits your educational, family, and overall life needs. Therefore, I wanted to highlight three of my favorite aspects of the Great Plains Family Medicine Residency Program, so applicants have a better idea of who we are as a residency program.

New Year, Mid-Year

Posted by Terrence Truong, MD on 01/10/2014

After the blur of a whirlwind of a holiday schedule, GPFM physicians and staff alike reconnect with one another as we resume our work during this first full week of the new year.  The buzz of new year’s resolutions and bowl games’ outcomes has ebbed, giving way to discussions of the polar vortex, interviews, new workflows, and the upcoming flu epidemic.  The new year also heralds transitions for residency programs.  Each resident class experiences new challenges, responsibilities, and excitement. 

At the midpoint of the academic year, our PGY-I’s growth as family physicians is amply evident.  They are taking on more responsibilities, will see more patients per clinic session, and have more independent decision making.  The slope has been crested and only the minor hurdle of the board exam remains, as they make their way to the PGY-II year.  

Our PGY-II’s have settled into the rhythm of frequent clinic sessions, more outpatient experience, and night float shifts.  They are refining their skills, becoming more efficient and proficient family physicians.  The reality of career choices rapidly approaches as they venture into the very real world of recruitment and interviews. 

Our PGY-III’s have become competent, well-rounded family physicians who are now honing their expertise in our clinic and hospitals.  However, they are still too preoccupied to realize they should begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  With less than six months remaining, they are coming up on the crunch time for deciding on and finalizing the details of their future practices.  Meanwhile, they still have to prepare for the ABFM Board Examination in April of this year. 

Soon enough, everyone’s status will change.  Meanwhile, we revel in the present and cherish our time with our current residents at Great Plains Family Medicine.  Happy New Year!
