BATESVILLE – White River Health System (WRHS) was proud to have Dr. Raman Kutty, Class of 2023 Internal Medicine Resident, represent the WRHS residency program at the American College of Physicians National Meeting in Chicago, Illinois. Out of 4,000 applicants from across the world, our resident’s project was one of only 10 to be selected.  The project focused on expired prescription drug potency.

With prescription drug prices rising, Kutty hopes that his team’s work will help reduce the cost to patients across the country. “We have a really unique opportunity here to get to the root of the issue,” said Kutty. “Everyone has old medications in their medicine cabinet and we all wonder if they’re still good or not. If medicines stay good for longer than we thought that’s a huge savings for everyone” he added.

Kutty was grateful for the opportunity.  Publicly, he thanked his project team, his fellow residents and program director at WRHS, the presentation review “committee,” and his friends and family.

The Internal Medicine Residency Program has welcomed five classes of 10 residents to the program.  The first class of residents graduated from the program in 2021, with the second class expected to graduate this month.  Out of these two classes, WRHS is proud to have three physicians join the staff at WRHS and three others sign letters of intent.  Physicians include Drs. Michael Andryka, Doreen Kamoga, Wyatt Lydolph, Mitchell Keel, Shoaib Khan, and Edwin Suarez.
