The Mississippi State Hospital Psychiatry Residency Program celebrated the opening of the newly-renovated Graduate Medical Education Building with a ribbon cutting and open house on June 21. The inaugural class was there for the event along with the leadership of MSH, the Mississippi Department of Mental Health, the Mississippi Psychiatric Association, The Office of Mississippi Physician Workforce, office of US Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith and others, all showing support for the program. Additionally, the program was honored to receive a letter of support from former Mississippi Governor and First Lady, Phil and Deborah Bryant.
“Our four-year program is dedicated to excellence above mere competence,” said Dr. Jon Corey Jackson, Program Director. “Located on the beautiful 350-acre campus at Whitfield, Mississippi State Hospital has a rich and storied history of providing quality and empathically driven care to the most seriously mentally ill patients in the state. Our dedication to Mississippi and serving its population is unwavering.”
