BAHEC Student Comments

BAHEC Student Comments

“I really enjoyed my time here in Bryan. Dr. Bumb and Dr. Schultz are both great teachers. I appreciated the independence they gave me so that I could grow as a future physician and become more prepared for my first year of residency next year. I actually think that more time here would have been very beneficial. Also, Bryan is a pretty cool town that changed my perception of rural so much that I could actually see myself practicing in such a place.” - Bryan

"I had a great time during this clerkship. The amount of one-on-one time with the attending was more than I had expected (it was all day!) and I feel like I gained a lot of experience and knowledge by being able to see patients on an individual basis. I feel like I had a lot of exposure to things I wouldn’t have necessarily been able to see at a larger institution in Toledo, and my attending made every effort to let me choose what I wanted to see. I would highly recommend this AHEC!" - Defiance

"Dr. Knipe provided a wonderful experience for me on Family Medicine. The experience allowed me to experience a variety of patients I would not have been able to meet in an urban setting and broadened my educational horizons. Everyone in the office staff was wonderful and helpful and genuinely cared for the patients. Highly recommended rotation!!" - Napoleon

“Dr. Bidwell was an amazing preceptor. Since the beginning, he’s made his expectation of me clear and gave me constructive criticism of how I can improve. He takes time every day to go over the patient list and answer all my questions about each patient and his/her condition. I also learned how to be a better doctor to my patients and how to provide a long term meaningful relationship with my patients. Being able to watch deliveries was amazing. I really felt like family medicine encompasses everything I want to do for the rest of my life." – Napoleon

“The entire surgical team from pre-op to PACU care/ambulatory and holding area are utterly fantastic. They have all been so helpful and understanding of student abilities and willing to teach anything and everything. They really made this rotation a great one. Also, Dr. Rao is a one-of-a-kind surgeon. His understanding and kindness are refreshing to see during a surgical rotation.” - Bryan

"I learned more during this rotation than I ever thought I could. Dr. Dajczak is an excellent teacher and is very thorough. He also taught me a lot about procedure skills in the OR and allowed me to practice my skills while giving great feedback. I would definitely recommend this rotation to everybody and wish I could have stayed here longer!" - Defiance

"Dr. Krueger was an excellent preceptor who, even though had a busy schedule, ALWAYS took time out to teach or answer any questions. He was excellent with EKG teaching. I wish I had more time here." - Napoleon

"Dr. Erwin is a great doctor and teacher. The 5 weeks I spent here was invaluable. It reignited my passion for medicine and has influenced me to strongly consider a career in gynecology and obstetrics.- Defiance

"Dr. Fofung is a kind, patient, intelligent man. I truly appreciate the opportunity to learn from him." - Wauseon

"Both Drs. Tantoco and Sroa provided autonomy and had high expectations of the medical student. I felt that I had significant responsibility for my patients and was involved in medical decision-making for the patients. I appreciated Dr. Sroa's emphasis on the pulmonary exam." - Bryan

"Dr. Keil was a phenomenal mentor. She gave me the opportunity to learn more about pathologies of different biopsies. She was very well experienced and provided stats and charts as to how to make distinctions between similar diseases. Thank you for allowing me to learn so much material in the 4 weeks allowed for this rotation." - Bryan

"Dr. Pole is excellent at explaining results of tests and disease process. I would highly recommend this rotation to anyone pursuing radiology or any student that wants a general background in radiology for future reference." – Wauseon

“I really enjoyed my Family Medicine clerkship in Hicksville. The Community Memorial Hospital staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. Dr. Reddy was very interested in teaching and provided me with a greater knowledge and appreciation of the field of Family Medicine. It was a great experience overall!” – Hicksville

“Dr. Frederick was a remarkable preceptor and educator. He had a genuine interest in contributing to the further development of my presentation, physical examination, communication and assessment skills. He has an amazing support staff that made the environment comfortable and, as a team, they fostered ideas of patient-centered care. The patient population here embraced the commitment that Dr. Frederick has made to lifelong learning by welcoming me, a student, into their appointments without reservation. I believe this is the best AHEC rotation that I have had thus far. The perspective that this community-based practice has provided has positively influenced my ideas on where I will practice in the future.” – Wauseon

“I really enjoyed the clerkship. Every last person I met at Henry County Hospital was nice and helpful. Dr. Haftkowycz is an excellent educator and person. He is genuinely interested in teaching his profession but also interested in developing students as compassionate people. I would come back and work with Dr. H anytime. Dr. H, his staff, the OR team, and the OB personnel were all very kind to me. They tried to help me and teach every step of the way. I have and will continue to recommend Dr. H and HCH to my fellow students” - Napoleon
