Post Rock Family Medicine Welcomes Natalie Hagman

Natalie HagmanMy name is Natalie Hagman. I’m in my 3rd year of medical school at KU School of Medicine – Wichita. I chose to do my 8 week Family Medicine Rotation in Plainville!

Where are you from ?
I was born and raised in Newton, Kansas. I attended the University of Kansas for my undergraduate studies and have been at KU School of Medicine – Wichita for the duration of my medical school career.

Why did you come to Plainville?
My mom’s family is from Ellis, so Hays is a familiar part of the state for me. I realized I’d get a more rich Family Medicine experience outside of Wichita. Plainville has a great reputation for the type of physicians that call this town home AND they practice the kind of medicine I hope to do someday. So why not learn from the best?!

cancer screening is frequently referred to as a Pap test, and it is used to find changes in the cells of the
cervix that could lead to cancer. Many of us remember when Paps were recommended when you
turned 18 or before being started on birth control of any kind, and when you had to have them done
