I chose to pursue a career in medicine because it affords me the ability to help patients in my community to have access to a primary care physician for their health concerns. I specifically chose Family Medicine because I am able to manage a patient's chronic medical problems as well as to provide measures to stave off diseases by implementing preventative measures. I manage a variety of chronic medical programs and provide referrals to specialist for problems in which a patient may require extensive evaluation.
While in medical school, Darrin Jackson received the Robert M. Hearin Support Foundation Minority Scholarship, which is awarded to minority students in the School of Medicine entering class who, in the opinion of the admissions committee, are most likely to provide health care to under-served Mississippians. His interests include family medicine and he treats routine primary care conditions. Dr. Jackson is a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
