It’s possible that Residents participating in Freeman’s Graduate Medical Education program could be permanent residents as healthcare providers in the Joplin area.

Freeman Health System celebrated the graduation of five physicians from its Graduate Medical Education program Friday night at the Billinglsy Student Center ballroom at Missouri Southern State University.
