Biography

Hi, I’m Latonya Beatty and I am thrilled to be one of the new Family Medicine interns. I grew up in Bolton, a small town about 30 miles outside of Wilmington. I’ve taken the non-traditional route into medicine. I have a nursing background where I was initially an RN and then I went on to become a FNP. Throughout my nursing career, I’ve had wonderful experiences in the hospital and clinical settings that has significantly increased my passion for family medicine. My desire to increase my scope of practice and my thirst for more knowledge could not be quenched. I attended undergrad at East Carolina University and medical school in the Caribbean at Montserrat.

I chose family medicine because I want to work with patients and their families across the span of a lifetime. I want to become an integral part of each patient's life and this specialty is the perfect opportunity to foster long-term relationships. Coastal Family Medicine is an amazing program for residency training! I’ve had great mentors in the past who received excellent training here. The faculty has a passion for teaching, mentoring, and will provide intensive clinical training experiences with a diverse patient population. I particularly enjoy rural medicine, women’s health, global health, and prevention. I am looking forward to training in an environment where I see myself working long term! Wilmington has a lot to offer with great weather, the beaches, and great food!
