New Southern Regional AHEC Family Medicine Residency Director Named
Southern Regional AHEC Hires Florida State University College of Medicine Associate Professor to Lead Program
As a family medicine physician, Eron Manusov, MD, has a special interest in rural health and teaching new doctors about special health needs and illnesses found in rural populations. In his new position as director of the Duke/Southern Regional AHEC Family Medicine Residency Program, Manusov (photo right) will merge his experience and interests into teachable moments, leading the program’s faculty while guiding family physicians during their three years of residency. Manusov is scheduled to begin his duties in mid-June, soon after the arrival of seven new residents into the program.
Currently an associate professor in the department of Family Medicine and Rural Health at Florida State University’s School of Medicine, Manusov is returning to familiar territory. From 2007-2009, he served Fayetteville’s neighboring rural populations in Lumberton, Pembroke, Fairmont, and Maxton as medical director of Robeson Health Care Corporation.
Manusov is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the National Rural Health Association and the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine. Through his duties as director of the residency program, Manuosov will also serve Southern Regional AHEC as vice president of Clinical Services and Education.
“We are certainly excited to have him on board,” Deborah Teasley, president and CEO of Southern Regional AHEC, commented on the new residency director. “His extensive teaching experience in residency programs and medical schools, as well as clinical practice, will advance our residents’ ability to improve health care quality and access in the nine-county region we serve and across North Carolina.”
