HATTIESBURG — The William Carey University College of Osteopathic Medicine (WCUCOM) has established a partnership with Forrest General Hospital, enabling third-year medical students to perform their rotations at the hospital.
To show WCU’s appreciation, Dr. Darrell Lovins, dean of the WCUCOM, and Dr. Tommy King, president of WCU, presented a plaque to Evan Dillard, president and CEO of Forrest General.
The WCUCOM has 603 preceptors from Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee and Florida who have agreed to host the third year students for their clinical rotations.
The WCUCOM is in its second year of operation, and the 101 members of the inaugural class, class of 2014, will begin their clinical rotations in August. Over the year, the students will each complete eight rotations, covering the areas of family medicine, emergency medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, internal medicine and psychiatry for a span of one to two months for each area.
