    in Health

     After greeting and commenting on the new issue of Family Medicine from the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine (STFM), Dr Jonas introduces Nicholas Hirth, MSIII at Wright State University Boonshoft School of Medicine.
    Nick speaks of his background including undergraduate studies at Ohio State and home town of Grove City, OH.  He discusses the WSU strengths and some aspects of the curriculum.  He reflects on the satisfaction he has interacting with patients and the emphasis WSU put on the patient-physician relationship from the start of medical school.
    He mentions his desire to stay in Ohio for training in a Primary Care specialty and future practice (Ohio is blessed to have such a knowledgable and dedicated future physician- a tribute to the wisdom of the WSU BSM admissions committee).
    Nick mentioned his Family Physician father who practices in Grove City and differences in the training then and now in medical school.  He also comments about how distant a lot of the health policy and healthcare funding issues seem to be from third year medical student activities.  The medical school offers many organizations to help students connect to the breadth of the medical profession.
