Kelsey Jo is currently a 4th year medical student at the University of Colorado. She has decided to go into family medicine as it aligns well with her long-term goal of practicing medicine in a rural community. Her husband (J. Ely Walker) and Kelsey have completed interviews for residency programs and will find out where they matched in March. Kelsey anticipates graduating in May 2011. Her academic plans remain unchanged. Kelsey will begin her residency in June or July of 2011 and will complete her training in 2014. At this time, she is considering a fellowship in geriatrics upon completion of residency. She believes this will better prepare her to meet the needs of her patients. Upon completion of training, Kelsey and her husband plan to return to rural Southern Colorado to live and practice medicine. She is not currently employed. She does, however, plan to enter the health care workforce upon completion of her training.
