Physicians graduate from Methodist Health's residency program

Two physicians have completed a three year Osteopathic Family Practice Program at Methodist Health. The graduates, Anne Alexis, DO and Robert Murray, DO were honored at a graduation ceremony held on June 22 at John James Audubon State Park in Henderson, KY.

A native of Poseyville, IN, Dr. Alexis earned her medical degree from the Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine (KYCOM) and her Bachelor of Science degree in biology from the University of Southern Indiana. Dr. Alexis plans to practice outpatient family medicine in Newburgh, IN.

“Dr. Anne Alexis is a quiet, calm and thoughtful young doctor,” said Joshua Kitchens, MD, Administrative Program Director of the Osteopathic Family Practice Program. “I have had the good fortune of being able to work with her as both a student and through her residency here at Methodist Health. Over that time period, she has grown to be a very capable and caring doctor who will take excellent care of her future patients.”

Originally from Lexington, KY, Dr. Murray completed his medical degree at the University of Pikeville KYCOM and his Bachelor of Arts degree in chemistry from the University of Louisville. Dr. Murray will join TeamHealth as a Special Ops Hospitalist providing care at various hospitals in Kentucky and Georgia.

“Dr. Robert Murray will move on to Hospitalist work very soon and I am proud to have been able to be a part of his education. He has shown himself to be highly concerned with his patients, their care and their best possible outcomes. He will be a great addition to the hospitals he practices in,” said Dr. Kitchens.

Established in 2003, the Methodist Health Osteopathic Family Practice Program is a partnership with the University of Pikeville KYCOM and is a member of the Appalachian Osteopathic Postgraduate Training Institute Consortium (A-OPTIC). The program provides practical hands on experience in a diverse environment designed to provide the highest standards of professional ethics and integrity.
