As recipient of the 2017 David C. Eitrheim, MD Rural Resident Memorial Scholarship, Dr. Fox describes how he is using the award.
The award will help support me as I pursue rural rotations in SW Wisconsin as well as help support my attendance at the AAFP annual meeting in 2018.

What does this award mean to you and how has receiving it impacted you?
It is very humbling to be this year's recipient of the award. The award is a great reminder of the state-wide support from the WAFP that is generously available to me and my fellow family medicine residents.

Who or what inspired you to pursue rural family medicine?
My desire to pursue rural family medicine is a product of my small town upbringing. A tight knit small community is where I feel most comfortable.

What are your future goals for your practice as a rural family physician?
In addition to full spectrum family medicine, I plan to also include medical student and resident education as part of my future practice. I can do my part to help recruit and train other family docs.

What advice would you give to up and coming medical students on the similar Rural Health Training Track?
My advice is to continue to revisit the things that make you passionate about a career in medicine. Sometimes, with classes, exams, OSCEs, rotations, Step exams, and intern year, the total demand on your time can make you lose focus on those things that drive you.
