My name is Madison Mohr, and I am excited to share my HGB experience with you! Growing up a short drive away in East Lansing, I find it amazing that my first summer break during medical school brings me back near home. In 2016, I earned a bachelor’s degree in kinesiology and minor in health promotions from Michigan State University. A year later, I started at Oakland University’s William Beaumont School of Medicine. My first year of medical school exceeded all expectations, furthering my love for science and deepening my drive to partake in an impactful real-world experience – cue my awesome internship with the HGB Clinical Integration team.
First, I must praise the team and thank them for a summer well spent. So devoted and so compassionate, this team exemplifies true commitment to the community’s health and vitality. To guide transitions in care, embolden patients to manage chronic conditions, and introduce preventative health measures are no easy tasks; nevertheless, they are just a few innovative and effective examples of our team’s collaborative effort to provide quality care.
As a future provider, potentially in pediatrics, cardiology or maybe physical medicine and rehab, learning the importance of population health has been key for me, and I appreciate HGB’s leadership in activating the community’s best self. With no doubt, I feel a few steps closer to my best self, albeit surely is still far away! In addition to the clinical integration opportunity, I’ve been fortunate enough to shadow many providers of various fields, all of which have been so invaluable as I prepare for year two at medical school. There’s still a long way to go and lots more learning to do over the next three years at medical school. I will always look back and remain grateful for my time at Hayes Green Beach.
