Applicant Season

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.

"I found the environment to be very supportive and uplifting and the faculty to all be very well educated and great to work with.  There is good support from upper level residents without always having someone with you or directly overseeing you during your daily duties.  I really enjoy the autonomy we experience from the very beginning of our intern year as it was the only program I had seen with this structure.  The program is pretty front-loaded with a lot of the inpatient and more time-consuming rotations scheduled during our intern year.  It’s nice to have the experience up front so the next two years are less about learning the basics and more preparing for being on our own after residency.  Consulting is easy since the physicians we call are often private physicians who are grateful for the referral.  I’ve had really good experiences with consults and other physicians in the hospital.  Our program really takes good care of us as far as meeting some of our needs beyond what other programs provide.  They pay for a lot of our ancillary costs, have our white coats clean and waiting for us each week, and provide us with lots of delicious food!"

What has been most surprising or unexpected since your intern year began?

"Beyond our faculty, we have rotating attendings with us on inpatient services and we work with a neonatology group on our OB/ newborn rotation.  I have been really impressed by how much all of our attendings and neonatology physicians enjoy teaching.  I’ve gleaned so much information in short 5-10 minute teaching sessions on rounds from all of the physicians I have worked with so far this year.  This program has done a good job addressing other aspects of clinic-work beyond just the academic side of residency training.  I didn’t realize how important things like billing would be and how much information I have to learn about other aspects of practicing medicine!  Thinking about the future, already, I feel confident that by the time I graduate I will be prepared to practice on my own."
