4 join OB-Gyn residency

So you’ve pulled the name of a new OB/Gyn resident for Secret Santa? Forget the candles - an LED-lit leash might be a good gift for some of these interns.

The four new interns joining Hurley Medical Center’s Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Training Program July 1, 2017, have four dogs between them, so they’ll be out walking regularly and may need a bit of extra light in the evenings. The “dogless” also like to go for walks - but they don’t have to carry leashes with them.

Look for the new faces of:

  • Rachel Ford MD: A Brighton, Mich., native, Ford earned her bachelor’s degree from Michigan State University, East Lansing, and her medical degree from the University of Medicine and Sciences, St. Kitts. When not working, Ford enjoys spending time with her family, her two dogs, and being active with water sports, weight-lifting, long-distance running, college football (as a spectator), arts, crafts and other hobbies.
  • Karen Moses MD: This graduate of St. George’s University School of Medicine, Grenada, loves to read, hike, swim, play volleyball, travel and catch up on favorite TV shows. She is originally from Trinidad and Tobago.
  • Andrea Pacheco MD: This Ecuadoran native completed medical school in her home country and added observerships at Hurley Medical Center in Maternal Fetal Medicine, as well as Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility. To keep herself in a good frame of mind, Pacheco listens to music and dances, especially to Latin music such as salsa and merengue. She loves spending time with her two dogs and her family and also likes to meet new people and to travel.
  • Mey Yip MD: Originally from Thailand, Yip and her family have lived in California since she was a wee one, and she earned her bachelor’s degree at the University of California. When she moved to Michigan for medical school, she found out about the Flint Campus while a student at Michigan State University College of Human Medicine, so she is happy to match here. In her spare time, she likes to hike, sew, embroider, and work on crafts, origami, photography and scrapbooking.
