Jesse Gettinger, MD

Medical School: Indiana University School of Medicine

Hello, my name is Jesse Gettinger, and I am from the small town of Bremen just thirty minutes south of South Bend, IN. Growing up, the biggest inspiration I had was my Dad, a family physician. Watching him care for his patients, and seeing him work so closely with the community showed me the great impact a family physician can have.­­I received my B.A. in Philosophy at the Pontifical College Josephinum in Columbus, OH. I then spent a year as a medical scribe for Dr. David Rosentrater, a family physician in Bremen. In that year I saw the ins-and-outs of a rural family medicine clinic and enjoyed every minute of it. It grew in me the interest to return to a rural clinic where I intent to practice the full scope of family medicine. I especially enjoy in-office procedures and the continuity between the out-patient clinic and in-patient medicine. ­­I was able to stay in the area for medical school when I was accepted to the Indiana University School of Medicine, South Bend Campus. I am married to my lovely wife Lauren and we have two children, Lucy and Margaret (“Maggie”). We enjoy family activities like going to the Potawatomi Zoo, picking blueberries, and eating ice cream at the local parks. In my spare time I enjoy barbequing, reading philosophical and science fiction novels, and brushing up on trivia knowledge. ­­I am excited to be continuing my education with the Memorial Hospital Family Medicine Residency. I have already had so many valuable experiences with the faculty and residents of Memorial through my medical school years in South Bend. I know I will be well-prepared to practice medicine confidently and compassionately after my time with the first-rate educators and residents at Memorial Hospital Family Medicine Residency.
