Jacob MorganJacob Morgan, a native of Stockton, is in his final week shadowing Dr. Loney.

Where are you from?

I am from right here in Stockton, Ks. I graduated from Stockton High School and completed my undergraduate degree at Fort Hays State University. I am currently in my third year of medical school at Kansas University School of Medicine in Kansas City, Ks.

Why did you come to Stockton?

I came to Stockton for several reasons but the main reasons are as follows. First, I have heard nothing but great things about the doctors and staff from my fellow classmates who have also rotated through Stockton. Second, it is nice to be around familiar faces and see how everyone I grew up with is doing these days. Third, I knew my mom would do my laundry!

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?

Currently, I am thinking about a career in surgery. I have always enjoyed working with my hands and I believe a career in surgery can fulfill that passion while at the same time being able to practice medicine and care for patients. I will add that I have an open mind at this point and may choose a different specialty in the end, but the one aspect of medicine that I definitely prefer is working in the rural setting.

It’s the middle of flu season and we still have influenza vaccinations available. We’d love to have you stop by for your shot soon!

Vaccines are available at all Post Rock clinics during regular business hours. Doctors Without Delay will also have flu shots available for patients needing to receive their shot after during more flexible hours.

Influenza can affect anybody seriously. However, young children, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with chronic medical conditions are most at risk for flu-related complications. For more information on influenza and the flu shot, visit the CDC’s flu webpage or check out this short fact sheet from the CDC.

I am currently living in Wichita, KS, where I am completing my last year of medical school.

Why did you come to Plainville?

I came to Plainville to learn from a great group of physicians and to learn what it is like to practice rural medicine. I have heard from classmates what a great experience they had working with Dr. Brull and her colleagues, making it the perfect opportunity to learn about rural medicine.
