Transitional Year Residency Program at Indiana University Health Ball Memorial Hospital
2019-2020 Transitional Year Residents
Christian Briggs, MD
I grew up in Valparaiso, a town in northwest Indiana, before attending Indiana University where I got a BS in physics. After deciding during my Junior year that I wanted to go into medicine instead of going to grad school, I applied early decision to Indiana University School of Medicine and spent all four years in Indianapolis. During MS3, I married my wife whom I met in undergrad. After intern year, we will be moving to Louisville where I will start my Ophthalmology residency at U of L.
I chose Ball Memorial because it will give me a solid medical foundation while still allowing me to pursue electives in Ophthalmology and other areas that will help me in my future practice. Working in Muncie also lets me continue to be close to family in Indiana. Finally the culture of Ball’s TY really stood out to me on interview day as everyone was so welcoming.
In my spare time, you might find me doing projects outdoors, cooking, visiting with family, reading classic sci-fi, or planning some travel adventure with my wife.
Jesse Dority, MD
I grew up in Frankfort, Indiana before going to college at Indiana University, where I majored in Chemistry and minored in Spanish. I then attended Indiana University School of Medicine, spending the first two years at the Muncie campus. While in Muncie, I experienced the highest level of care and professionalism at Ball Memorial Hospital that helped mold my own professional career. My final two years of medical school were spent at the Indianapolis campus. I am excited to start my residency programs beginning with Ball Memorial for my transitional year and Indiana University for Anesthesia.
When I am not in the hospital, I enjoy spending time with my wife, Bethany, and our two dogs, Lance and Addi. This includes daily walks, hiking, and trips to the dog park. I also enjoy reading, basketball, and movies in my spare time.
Patrick England, MD
I was born in California, but grew up in Avon Lake, a suburb of Cleveland, Ohio. Upon graduation of high school, I went on to study at The Ohio State University where I majored in Biomedical Engineering. Just prior to graduation, I realized I wanted to be immersed not only in technology, but also patient care.
Because I decided to go to medical school late, I took a gap year to widen my experience and bolster my résumé. I worked in pharmaceuticals as a quality control scientist and volunteered at a couple local hospitals.
During my years at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, I reaffirmed my passion for biomedical technologies and decided to specialize in radiology.
I am excited to be here at Ball Memorial Hospital for my transitional year. After this year, I commence my radiology program at the University of Louisville. When not at the hospital, I can be found running or biking the Cardinal Greenway trail, playing guitar, baking something sweet, or hanging out with my wife Kari.
Katelyn Glines, DO
I was born in Neola, UT, a rural town in northeastern region of the state. I graduated from the University of Utah in 2015 with a BS in Health Promotion and Education with an Emergency Medical Services Emphasis. Following my undergraduate studies, I attended medical school at University of Pikeville Kentucky College of Osteopathic Medicine.
I am thrilled and honored to be a part of the transitional year program at IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital and look forward to making Muncie home for a year. I’m looking forward to learning from the opportunities, community, and experiences this program has to offer.
Aside from learning medicine, I enjoy spending time with my husband and beagle, visiting family, kayaking, hiking, horseback riding and reading mysteries.
Patrick Goodin, MD
Born and raised in Carmel, Indiana, I’ve always been a Hoosier. For undergraduate I studied Biology at IU Bloomington, then obtained a Master of Science in Biology at IUPUI before completing all four years of medical school in Indianapolis at IU. While in Indianapolis, I particularly enjoyed learning the pharmacology and physiology behind anesthesiology, and ultimately felt that it was a strong fit for me. During my time working with IU residents and faculty in various fields downtown, I repeatedly heard great things about the Transitional Year residency program in Muncie. I am very fortunate and excited to have the opportunity to spend my first year of residency at Ball Memorial Hospital before continuing my training at IU’s anesthesiology program in Indianapolis.
In addition to spending time with family and friends, I enjoy following Indiana’s professional sports teams, trying local craft beer, playing the mid-west card game Euchre, and watching crime documentaries.
Camille Gordon, MD
I was born in Louisville, Kentucky but grew up in the small town of Mount Washington, Kentucky. From an early age, I knew I wanted to be a doctor and would read my uncle's medical school textbooks in my spare time. After high school, I attended Centre College (Danville, Kentucky). I graduated in 2013 with a bachelor of science in biology.
For two years between college and medical school, I worked as a medical scribe in an emergency department and outpatient pediatric practice in Louisville. I was then promoted to training scribes locally then nationally, successfully implementing new scribe programs throughout the nation. After my travels, I returned to attend the University of Louisville School of Medicine, graduating with honors.
Next year, I will be moving to Tampa to begin my diagnostic radiology residency at the University of South Florida. Outside the hospital, I enjoy weight lifting, spending time with friends and family, and traveling.
Michael Groswald, MD
I grew up in Carmel, IN and went to University of Miami, FL, where I majored in mathematics with minors in chemistry and microbiology. I participated in marching band all through high school and college, playing saxophone and mellophone. I then returned home to Indiana for medical school at Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis.
Following my transitional year, I will be returning to Indianapolis to complete residency in diagnostic radiology.
I love playing saxophone, watching sports, and the outdoors. I enjoy traveling and keeping up with my family and friends.
Scott O’Brien, MD
I am an Indiana boy at heart and grew up on the south side of Indianapolis, attending Center Grove High
School. I was a two-sport athlete in high school and decided to pursue my passion of football at Washington University in St. Louis. I played for two seasons at Wash U before tearing my ACL at the end of my sophomore season and then again at the beginning of my junior season—crushing any dreams of becoming the new era Ed Reed or Troy Polamalu. While at Wash U, I developed a passion for medicine and found myself always intrigued by the anatomy and physiology of the human body. After graduating Wash U in 2014, I worked for a year in the Pediatric Ophthalmology department at Riley Hospital for Children. I attended Indiana University School of Medicine the following year, spending my first two years at the Evansville campus before moving to Indianapolis for years 3 and 4. After my Transitional Year here at Ball Memorial, I will be heading down south to complete my Anesthesia residency at Jackson Memorial Hospital in Miami, Florida.
What drew me to Ball Memorial was the down to earth feel that the residents and faculty alike portrayed on my interview day. The hospital and people exuded the Midwest hospitality that I was used to growing up in Indiana and spending time across the state.
In my spare time, I am an avid sports fan/follower and my teams include: the Indianapolis Colts, Indiana Pacers, Chicago Cubs, IUBB, and The U Miami Hurricanes football. I also love spending time outdoors especially if it involves exercising or staying active. I spent a month traveling across Europe going on different hikes and capped off medical school by traveling to South America to hike in the Patagonia region.
Derek Rohlfing, MD
I grew up in the small city of Effingham, IL and could often be found on the golf course until sunset. My high school golf team competed in the state finals all four years, and we won state my junior year. I also played basketball and competed in high jump on the track team with a personal best leap of 6’6”. I then pursued a collegiate golf career before beginning my medical training. I was a golf team member of both the John A Logan Volunteers and the IUPUI Jaguars during my undergraduate college years while pursuing a major in chemistry with a minor in biology. I graduated from IUPUI in 2015. A medicinal chemistry course at IUPUI piqued my interest in the medical field, and after four short, stress-free years of medical school, I graduated from IU School of Medicine.
The culture at Ball Memorial Hospital is one of putting the patient first and treating all team members with respect in the process of caring for patients, truly a team effort and family of caretakers that I am proud to be a part of.
In my free time, I enjoy playing golf, exercising, learning new songs on the guitar, live music, and frequenting local ice cream shops. Following my year in Muncie, I will return to Indianapolis for three years of clinical anesthesia residency.
Evan Rush, MD
I was born at Bloomington Hospital and attended k-12 at Bloomfield Schools in Bloomfield, Indiana. I decided to pursue a career in medicine, because my family doctor told me that I either needed to lose weight, get weight loss surgery, or I would live a shorter life. With this information in mind, I lost 200 pounds between my freshman and sophomore year of high school.
I attended college at Indiana State University where I earned a degree in Chemistry, was part of the rural health program, and worked as a resident assistant for four years. I was accepted into the IU School of Medicine and attended the Terre Haute Campus for four years. However, I also visited Nicaragua for a mission trip and did rotations in Indianapolis and at Emory University.
I matched to Ohio State University for Diagnostic Radiology.
Outside of my professional life, I will be married for 2 years in July to my wife, Katelyn. We have a corgi named Opal and a calico cat named Ellie. I volunteer with the Boy Scouts of America (I am an Eagle Scout) and with Big Brothers Big Sisters and enjoy going hiking, listening to audio books and talking to people on airplanes.
