Dr. Agarwal's Bio

Hometown: St. Croix, U.S. Virgin Islands
Undergraduate:Boston University
Medical School: St. George's University
Interests & Tidbits: I enjoy anything outside and underwater. I love playing basketball, volleyball, and scuba diving. I'm all about the hole-in-the-wall coffee shops and enjoy going out.
Why Saint Francis FMR: Never did I think I would see myself in Memphis. I’ve always been either an island boy or a city type of person. When I interviewed at Saint Francis, that changed. I realized that this program would offer full-spectrum family medicine through this unopposed nature and allow me to be involved with the community through its endless opportunity, such as volunteering at local sports games. I have always had an interest for sport medicine and I feel that Saint Francis has helped many previous residents pursue their fields of interest. They have a great network of hospitals and a vast number of interesting fellowships to choose from, including Addiction Medicine, Women's Health, Palliative Care, Emergency Medicine, and Sports Medicine! The faculty is extremely approachable and the program is great if you’re a hands on learner!

Dr. Hatchett's Bio

Hometown: Pine Bluff, AR
Undergraduate: University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (Go Lions!)
Medical School: University of Arkansas
Marital Status: Single, no children
Interests & Tidbits: I love to laugh. I also enjoy spending time and friends and family, listening to live music, and attending sporting events.
Why Saint Francis FMR: I chose Saint Francis because of its unopposed curriculum. I felt the rotations at Saint Francis and with other UT affiliated hospitals would diversify my education and properly prepare me for a career after residency. The opportunity to pursue a fellowship was also an awesome plus. During my interview and dinner, I observed the supportive and friendly rapport amongst residents, faculty and staff, and knew that Saint Francis was the best choice for me! I am excited and thankful to join the Saint Francis family.
