CONWAY, Ark. (March 19, 2021) – Conway Regional Health System welcomes four new family medicine residents as the next class of its Family Medicine Residency Program. Residents include Cynthia Chow, MD, Trent DeLong, Reagan Garber, and Lily Fran McCrory. The new residents will begin their training on July 1, 2021.
“Conway Regional is honored to welcome four highly-qualified residents to our Family Medicine Residency Program,” said Matt Troup, President and Chief Executive Officer. “With this program, we seek to train a generation of physicians who are critical thinkers, compassionate providers, skilled clinicians, and future leaders in medicine.”
On Friday, March 19—Match Day 2021—medical students around the world learned where they will complete their residency training for the next three to seven years. Match Day is known as the highlight of many physician’s careers, marking the day that their life-long dream of becoming a physician is made a reality.
“In 2019, we received Institutional Accreditation, and last year we welcomed our inaugural class of family medicine residents,” said Rebekah Fincher, Chief Administrative Officer and Designated Institutional Officer. “As our program continues to grow, we look forward to encouraging each physician in their practice, supporting them as medical professionals, and preparing each of them for a successful life as a family physician.”
These four residents will learn to practice as effective members of the health care system through multi-disciplinary team-based care within the inpatient and ambulatory settings. The three-year program is based in the Conway Regional Medical Center, the Conway Medical Group, and Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
“I am so thankful for the opportunity to lead these bright young people as they pursue their calling to improve the lives of our community and the world around us for years to come,” said Sarah Robertson, MD, Family Medicine Residency Program Director. “The goal of our program is to equip these family physicians with the knowledge, experience, and skills necessary to provide excellent patient care and positively impact the health of the communities we serve.”
