SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Dr. Tanya Anim, a resident physician participating in Halifax Health’s Family Medicine Residency Program, has been selected to serve on the Residency Review Committee for Family Medicine.
The Residency Review Committee is appointed by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) to oversee all Family Medicine Residency Programs in the United States in order to ensure that accreditation standards are being met and that all residents benefit from training of the highest quality.
Anim, who is completing the first year of her two-year term on the Residency Review Committee (RRC) for Family Medicine, says, “This is an exciting time at the ACGME with the implementation of the Next Accreditation System (NAS) and I am fortunate to be on the RRC as Family Medicine is making the transition to the NAS.”
She adds, “Since I began my term I have had the humbling opportunity to give input regarding the pending updated Family Medicine Program Requirements and I also served on the subcommittee that authored the Family Medicine Milestones. It has been a tremendous honor to serve the public and family medicine residents across the nation in this capacity.”
Degree from FSU
Anim began her residency at Halifax Health in 2010 after receiving a medical doctor degree from the Florida State University College of Medicine. She served as chief resident for the Halifax Health Family Medicine Residency Program from 2012-2013.
In 2012, she received the American Academy of Family Physicians/Bristol-Myers Squibb Award for Excellence in Graduate Education. Her goal is to pursue a career practicing the full-scope of family medicine, including obstetrics, providing comprehensive, compassionate, patient-centered care to those in underserved areas.
“Dr. Amim is a shining example of the quality of the physicians selected to participate in our residency program,” says Ed Prevatte, MD, program director for the Family Medicine Residency Program.
The Halifax Health Family Medicine Residency Program is affiliated with the Department of Family Medicine of the University of South Florida College of Medicine and the Florida State University College of Medicine.
