Post Rock Family Medicine Welcomes Caitlyn McCall

January 27, 2017 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

My name is Caitlyn McCall, I am a 4th year medical student from the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City. I am working with Dr. Fisher for my rural rotation.

Where are you from?
I was born and raised in Kansas City, KS and went to Rockhurst University for my undergraduate degree before starting medical school at KU in Kansas City.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I came to Plainville for my rural rotation, because I wanted to get the true small town experience. I also wanted to be able to learn at a critical access hospital and see what it is like on the other side, as I have only had experience at a large academic center.

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?
I plan to go into OB/GYN. I chose this because I am not only passionate about women’s health, but because of the wide range of care that you get to provide. You are able to see a patient in clinic, deliver their children in the hospital, and perform surgeries as well.

What do you like about shadowing in Plainville?
I like that I have truly been accepted as a part of the community. Even though Dr. Fisher is my preceptor, I have been able to work with a number of providers here and they all seem to want me to have the best experience and learn as much as I can while I am here.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
Outside of medicine I enjoy spending time outdoors, especially with my dog Mack. I also enjoy reading and seeing movies.

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
Plainville has taught me many things, most importantly that just because a hospital or town is small, does not mean that they cannot provide the same level of care for many different conditions that you can get at a bigger institution.
