Tribal Health announces Eric Weber, MD, graduate of the University of Kentucky School of Medicines, for a three week residency at Tribal Health as a licensed physician. 

 

Dr. Weber is from Berkeley, Calif., and has an undergraduate degree from the University of California, Berkeley, Calif.

 

He enjoys hiking, backpacking, soccer, fishing, boating, and beekeeping.  Dr. Weber also volunteered with the US Coast Guard as a Flotilla Staff Officer. 

 

“This residency program is part of a goal that Tribal Health has been developing for several years now,” said Tribal Health Medical Director Dr. Bernadette Corum.  “Having a resident physician is good for our community, as Dr. Albers will be another doctor for patients to access, with the benefit that our community will actually be helping her learn more to be a better physician in the future.” 

 

While working at Tribal Health, Dr. Weber will see patients in the medical clinics. She will be supervised by Dr. Corum.

 

Resident doctors are doctors in training. They have graduated from medical school, been awarded a doctorate degree in medicine, and now are training to be a particular type of doctor — such as a family doctor, pediatrician or pediatric specialist, or a type of surgeon.  All residents are supervised by a legally responsible senior physician.
