Shayla Nettey

Sometimes you just know where you belong. That’s how I would sum up my feelings for Wake Forest after seeing the obvious camaraderie of their residents in addition to the superb teaching and clinical care during my interview day.  Since then, my husband and I have enjoyed our time here because of the family-like environment of the program.  I am thankful to Wake Forest for allowing me to be a part of such a great institution and providing me with the tools for a career as an Internist.

Shayla Nettey grew up in Augusta, Ga and completed her undergraduate education in Biology at UGA.  She graduated from Morehouse School of Medicine in 2014.  Shayla looks forward to the challenges of chief year and plans to pursue a career in Endocrinology.  Her husband, Ralph, also graduated from his family medicine residency program at Cone Hospital and works as a hospitalist.  Shayla enjoys playing video games with Ralph, drawing graphite portraits, and cooking.
