Archbold Welcomes New Class of Residents

Archbold Memorial has announced its third class of internal medicine residents.

These six physicians will spend the next three years at Archbold, rotating between specialties with an emphasis on internal medicine. The residents will begin their program at Archbold in July.

Robby Amin, MD, is a graduate of Avalon University School of Medicine.

Alexis Katz, DO, is a graduate of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Georgia Campus.

Bharadwaj Jilakaraju, MD, is a graduate of the University of Missouri–Kansas City School of Medicine.

Jonathan Roberts, DO, is a graduate of the Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine.

Diana Rochez, MD, is a graduate of the American University of the Caribbean.

Lauren Trevino, MD, is a graduate of Ross University School of Medicine.

“We are excited to welcome our third class of resident physicians to Archbold and Thomasville,” said Dr. Raul G. Santos, Archbold Nephrologist and Residency Program Director. "Over the next three years, they will undergo rigorous training and collaborate with our medical staff to deliver the highest quality care to patients in our region."

South Georgia has a shortage of primary care physicians, and Archbold’s residency program focuses on training and retaining physicians who will stay in the area to practice. Residency programs are important to communities, especially in rural and underserved regions, because physicians are more likely to stay and practice within 60 miles of where they completed their residency training. Archbold’s program allows the region to develop its own physicians rather than solely recruiting from outside the area.
