Golden Native Begins Family Medicine Residency at NMMC
TUPELO, Miss.—The North Mississippi Medical Center Family Medicine Residency Program recently welcomed eight new residents, including M. Craig Moffett, D.O., of Golden.
Dr. Moffett received bachelor’s degrees in biology and psychology from the University of Mississippi in Oxford and a master’s degree in biomedical sciences at the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson. He received his medical degree from the William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Hattiesburg. He is a Mississippi Rural Physicians Scholar, and served as a student delegate to the Mississippi Academy of Family Physicians and the Mississippi State Medical Association.
He is the son of Mitch and Regina Moffett of Golden and is married to Courtney Moffett.
“The family medicine residency training program emphasizes quality medical education through traditional medical and surgical rotations. The program’s quality is also enhanced by a broad-based curriculum in family medicine in the NMMC Family Medicine Residency Center and in rural rotations throughout North Mississippi Medical Clinics,” said Dennis Smith, D.O., residency director. “Our primary goal is to increase the number of board-certified family physicians in Mississippi, and this program is leading us in that direction. We must rebuild our primary care base if we expect to properly care for the growing number of elderly and if we expect to improve quality of care while tempering cost increases.”
