Post Rock Welcomes Emily Pfeifer

August 31, 2018 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

Emily is attending the University of Kansas School of Medicine.  She is in her 4th year of school and is completing her rural rotation.  Emily is shadowing Dr. Lynn Fisher.

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Hays, KS! Many of my family members still live in the Hays area and I love coming back to visit. I graduated from Hays High School in 2011. I then moved to Lawrence, KS to attend the University of Kansas and graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Human Biology. Following graduation, I moved to Kansas City and started medical school at KUMC. Rock Chalk!

Why did you come to Plainville?
There are many reasons I chose to come to Plainville for my rural rotation. I was hoping to work with a rural family physician that also practiced obstetrics in order to learn about the resources available for moms and babies in this setting. I had heard of the wonderful reputation of Post Rock Family Medicine from both student predecessors and family members in the area. I also get to stay with my mom in Hays for the month!

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?
I hope to complete a residency in obstetrics and gynecology following graduation from KU Med in May. I have a passion for women’s health and love the variety that Ob/Gyn offers. I enjoy working on the labor and delivery floor as well as assisting with procedures in the operating room. I love the hands-on nature of this specialty and look forward to caring for women in the future!
