Post Rock Family Medicine Welcomes Connor Brass

February 24, 2017 | Uncategorized | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

My name is Connor Brass, I am a fourth year medical student at the University of Kansas in Kansas City. During my month in Stockton/Plainville, I have been completing a rural preceptorship with Dr. Beth Oller.

Where are you from?
I am originally from Salina and attended Kansas State University for my undergraduate degree.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I came to Plainville because I have family in both Stockton and Phillipsburg and would love to come practice in this area of the state once I finish residency.

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?
I will be completing residency training in ophthalmology at the University of Kansas after I graduate. I feel that by focusing on vision and diseases of the eye, I can make the biggest impact on the lives of my future patients.

What do you like about shadowing in Plainville?
I enjoy the wide breadth of medicine that the physicians practice here and the friendly patient population.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
I like all types of sports and exploring outdoor places. I especially enjoy rock climbing and will be going to Moab, Utah this spring to climb my first desert tower.

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
I want to gain perspective on how primary care physicians operate in a rural setting and how as a future specialist, I can work with them most effectively.
