Post Rock Family Medicine Welcomes Isaac Talbert

April 21, 2017 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer

My name is Isaac Talbert, I am a third year medical student at the University of Kansas in Kansas City. During my month in Plainville, I have been completing a Family Medicine rotation with Dr. Lynn Fisher.

Where are you from?
My family currently lives in Olathe Kansas, but I grew up in Lyons KS and Nepal.

Why did you come to Plainville?
I originally heard about Plainville hospital from my grandparents who live in Stockton. I was looking for a location to do my family rotation that would provide a hands-on experience. I heard great things about the hospital in Plainville from both my grandparents and students. It was the perfect opportunity for a good family medicine experience and to see my family.

What do you hope to be when you’re out of school? Why?
My goal is to march into orthopedic surgery or general surgery residency because I enjoy being in the OR and want to be in a field where I am working with my hands.

What do you like about shadowing in Plainville?
The environment is great, everyone is friendly and there is a great sense of community and teamwork. I have also enjoyed exposure to the administrative side of healthcare and appreciate seeing the political activism show by faculty here.

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
I like to play sports, especially basketball and frisbee. When time allows I also enjoy woodworking, throwing ceramics, and repairing electronics.

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
While in Plainville I hope to absorb as much knowledge and clinical skills as possible in order to be a well rounded doctor that can handle medical problems in any location or situation.
