Beebe Healthcare’s Family Medicine Residency Matches with Four Doctors on Match Day

Staff WriterBusiness, RSS-Business

A crowd gathered at the Margaret H. Rollins Lewes Campus on Friday afternoon to excitedly welcome the announcement of the second class of resident physicians.

Beebe’s Family Medicine Residency matched with four physicians who had recently finished medical school, including one who hails from Sussex County. These four physicians will join the residents from last year as part of Beebe’s growing program. The residents will take part in a three-year academic curriculum at Beebe, gaining exposure and hands-on experience in a wide range of clinical areas – from the emergency and operating rooms to countless specialty areas such as OB-GYN, pediatrics, cardiology, ophthalmology, and orthopaedics.

“We welcome these resident physicians into our community and Beebe family,” said Jeffrey Hawtof, MD, Director of Medical Education at the R. Randall Rollins Center for Medical Education at Beebe Healthcare. “I remember how exciting this day was many years ago. I want to thank our team here at Beebe, our donors, and community for being so supportive of the program.”

The physicians

Gianna Grogan, DO, who resides in Fishersville, Virginia, and completed medical school at the Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Virginia Campus.

Philande Bisseng Ntock, MD, who resides in Miami, Florida, and graduated medical school from the St. George’s University School of Medicine in Grenada.

Elsa Tabrez, MD, who resides in Orlando, Florida, and completed medical school at the American University of Integrative Sciences School of Medicine in Barbados.

Dorothy Vosik, DO, who is from Milton, is a Delaware Institute for Medical Education and Research (DIMER) student and graduated medical school from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Vosik completed her third-year clinical rotations at Beebe Healthcare.

The announcement was not without fun dramatics. The matches are kept an utmost secret until noon of Match Day. Joyce Robert, MD, founding program director of Beebe’s Family Medicine Residency, was scheduled to announce the names at noon. But at 11:58 a.m. Dr. Robert had completed her introduction and thanks to staff and faculty. Seeing her dilemma, her colleagues helped pass the time by singing “Happy Birthday” to her, finishing just in time to reveal the second class as the hour changed.

“It’s extra special to me that every year I get two gifts with my birthday falling within the same week as Match Day,” said Dr. Robert. “I’m so thrilled to welcome these four resident physicians into the Beebe family and so proud of the faculty and staff who make this program at Beebe successful.”

The celebration continues next week for the program. Beebe will break ground on a Family Medicine Residency Clinic at the Long Neck Health Center at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, March 21.

This new building project at the Long Neck Health Center will give current and future resident physicians more space to serve a culturally diverse population in an area that continues to grow. With the full complement of residents, the doctors will be able to provide about 7,000 primary care appointments.
