Post Rock Family Medicine Welcomes Tequilla Manning

April 19, 2016 | Students | By: Naomi Wyatt

My name is Tequilla Manning, and I am a third-year medical student at KU School of Medicine in Kansas City, KS. I am currently working with Dr. Beth Oller for my family medicine rotation.

Where are you from?
I am from Starkville, MS. I completed my undergraduate degree at Grinnell College in Grinnell, IA, so I am no stranger to the Midwest.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I came to Plainville because I am interested in rural healthcare. My overarching goal is to work internationally in rural communities either in Africa or Latin America.

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?
When I graduate from medical school, I hope to enter a family medicine residency program. I want to train in full-spectrum family medicine with obstetrics care because my goal is to work abroad and in underserved communities.

What do you like about shadowing in Plainville?
I like the hands-on experience, one-to-one mentorship, and welcoming environment in Plainville. I am thoroughly enjoying my experience here!

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
I like to write, read, and watch movies in my free-time.

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
My objectives for this rotation are to learn how rural family physicians manage their work and home life, how they efficiently utilize their resources, and what their medical training allows them to do in a rural setting.
