Meredith Bentley, D.O., named Marshall’s September Resident of the Month

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. – Meredith Bentley, D.O., has been named Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine’s Resident of the Month for September, announced Paulette S. Wehner, M.D., vice dean for graduate medical education at the school.

“It is always nice when you have a ‘go to’ person to get things done,” Wehner said. “Dr. Bentley is that person. Throughout her four years in psychiatry residency, she has constantly demonstrated her leadership ability to enhance patient care and the clinical learning environment outcomes. Dr. Bentley will be an excellent addition to the faculty here at Marshall when she completes her residency. ”

A Kenova, West Virginia, native, Bentley earned her medical degree from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg.  While in medical school, Bentley was the recipient of the TOUCH Volunteer Award for three of her four medical school years. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree in biology/pre-med from Marshall University. Bentley is also a graduate of Spring Valley High School.   

“Dr. Bentley is a wonderful psychiatry resident,” said Suzanne Holroyd, M.D., chair of the department of psychiatry and behavioral medicine and residency program director. “She is a team player, has superb organizational skills, brings a positive attitude to work every day and provides excellent patient care. Dr. Bentley is well deserving of this recognition.”

Bentley received a plaque and designated parking spot as part of her recognition.  She and her husband, Jon, are the proud parents of a two-year old son, Asa Ryan. After finishing her residency in June 2020, she will join the department of psychiatry and behavioral medicine at the Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine as a faculty member.
