Deanna Jones, MD
When I was a medical student looking for an internal
medicine residency program, I looked for an academic institution with a focus
on education, wide diversity of patients and diagnoses, and ample opportunity
for subspecialty fellowship training. Wake Forest met all of these needs and
added a friendly atmosphere where attendings and colleagues work together to
care for patients and make sure all the work gets done at the end of the day.
Throughout my residency, I have been able to rotate on a
variety of services including general medicine, cardiology, medical intensive
care unit, cardiovascular intensive care unit, hematology/oncology floor unit,
intermediate care unit, and more including many subspecialty consult services.
I feel that this experience has adequately trained me in general internal
medicine, and look forward to testing my skills and developing them further
throughout my chief year.
In addition, my husband and I, being originally from a
suburb of Pittsburgh, have thoroughly enjoyed living in Winston-Salem. The town
itself has a very suburban feel – not too much traffic but plenty of things to
do around town. We find that the people here are very friendly and have made
lasting friendships with those in residency and in the community.
Deanna Jones is originally from Bethel Park, PA, and
obtained her undergraduate medical degree from Marshall University. She plans
to pursue a fellowship in nephrology following chief year. Her husband, Adam,
is a children’s minister at a local Baptist church. They enjoy sports
(including Dash games), board games, and playing with their dog, Chloe.
