Doctors Without Delay Welcomes Macy Burke!

October 2, 2020 | Students | By: Jodie Ostmeyer


My name is Macy Burke, I am a second year physician assistant student in the Wichita State University-Physician Assistant Program. I am working with Emily Decker for my urgent care and pediatrics rotation.

Where are you from?
Spring Hill, Kansas. A small, rural town about 45 minutes south of Kansas City.

Why did you come to Plainville?
Coming from a small community myself, I sought out opportunities that would allow me to work in that environment. The patient-provider relationships in these smaller towns can be so beneficial to the health of the patient and their outcome.

What do you hope to be when you are out of school?
I am someone that likes a little bit of everything and working with all ages, so a physician assistant in a family practice clinic is probably the best fit for me!

What do you like to do outside of medicine?
In my spare time, I enjoy going for runs, reading, visiting friends and playing with my parents’ two dogs, Junie and Mabel.

What do you hope to learn from your rotation in Plainville?
As a student, I am constantly working on basic clinical skills, coming up with a differential diagnosis and continuing to learn from my patients. Coming from another small town rotation, I am excited to see how another facility practices and interacts with their patients and community. I am so looking forward to being here!
