Medical Student at MMC and MHSI
Vanessa Maycumber will be joining the staff at Marias Medical Center and Marias Healthcare, beginning February 4, as a Medical Student. She will be working under the oversight of Marias Healthcare physicians through June, 2013.
I am Vanessa Maycumber, a 3rd year medical student from the University of Washington. I am looking forward to coming to Shelby. Born and raised in Kalispell, I enjoyed visiting Glacier Park and Flathead Lake every summer and hiking and canoeing in local forests and lakes. I was actively involved in speech and debate, played the clarinet, and held state offices in the Health Occupations Students of America. After graduating from Flathead High School in 2006, I was awarded a full scholarship to Wheaton College in Illinois, where I majored in psychology and minored in French. While volunteering at a free clinic in nearby Bolingbrook, I began to reflect on health care delivery shortages in Montana and was eager to return to my home state.
My first year of medical school was spent in Bozeman as a University of Washington student. I was delighted to join the TRUST program, a rural track that paired me with a physician mentor in Browning, Shortly after starting my first year of medical school, I was awarded a full scholarship through the National Health Service Corps, contingent on working in a health provider shortage area. More recently, I have volunteered with foot care clinics and homeless shelter clinics in the Seattle area. In my spare time, I
enjoy hiking, reading, cooking, and traveling. While visiting Shelby in December 2011, I immediately felt welcomed by the community. After preceptorships in Browning and rotations in Great Falls, I look forward to exploring more of north central Montana's health care network. My current goal is to work in a small Montana town like Shelby and practice family medicine with OB. Thank you for the opportunity to train at Marias Medical Center!
